Saints of the Day – Bonet of Clermont, O.S.B., Bishop


(also known as Bonitus, Bont) Born in Auvergne, France, in 623; died c.710. Saint Bonet was chancellor to King Sigebert III, before being appointed governor of Provence, and finally bishop of Clermont in Auvergne. After 10 years as bishop, he resigned, owing to a scruple of conscience, and retired to the Benedictine abbey of Manlieu, where he became a monk and died in extreme old age (Benedictines, Encyclopedia).
