San Deicolo di Irlanda e la Francia (+625)

18 gennaio

San Deicolo, in francese Deisle o Desle, in gaelico Dichuil o Dichul (Leinster, 530 circa – Lure, 18 gennaio 625), fu un monaco irlandese, fondatore ed abate di abbazie in Francia.

Discepolo di Colombano di Bobbio, partì con lui nel 576 dall’Irlanda per la Gallia, dove fondarono la grande abbazia di Luxeuil nei Vosgi. Quando nel 610 San Colombano fu esiliato in Italia da Teodorico II, San Deicolo fondò l’abbazia di Lure, arricchita e dotata di ogni genere di beni ad essa necessari dal re merovingio Clotario II, che aveva riconosciuto la qualità spirituali di Deicolo.

A Lure il monaco irlandese trascorse il resto della sua vita sino alla morte, avvenuta verso l’anno 625.

Deicolo era noto per i numerosi miracoli compiuti in vita ed in morte, attribuitigli da una biografia risalente al X secolo, scritta da un monaco di Lure.

Saint Desle (Deicola / Deicolus),

d’Irlande et de France (+625)

18 janvier

La vie de saint Desle (Deicola / Deicolus) est connue par un écrit anonyme de la fin du ixe siècle, la Vita Deicola.

Né en Irlande à une date inconnue, il serait le frère de saint Gall. Il entra tout jeune à l’abbaye de Bangor et vécut attaché à la spiritualité de saint Colomban. Il suivit ce dernier au monastère de Luxeuil où il passa sa vie de 590 à 610.

Au début de l’année 610, à l’instigation du roi Thierry et de Brunehilde, les moines de Luxeuil durent s’exiler et prirent le chemin de Besançon. Sur la route, saint Desle, épuisé, dut laisser partir ses compagnons.

La “Vita Deicola” raconte qu’arrivé ainsi dans la forêt de Darney, il fit jaillir une source en frappant la terre de son bâton et rencontra ensuite un berger qui le conduisit vers une chapelle dédiée à saint Martin, près de laquelle il construisit une cabane.

Plus tard, ayant recouvré la santé, saint Desle partit fonder un nouveau monastère, près de Lure, encouragé par Clotaire II qui lui offrit un vaste domaine. Là, il reprit la règle de Luxeuil, en y apportant quelques adoucissements, se rapprochant de la règle de saint Benoît qui commençait à s’étendre en Occident. Saint Desle entreprit alors un voyage vers Rome afin d’aller faire approuver sa règle par le pape. Il mourut en 625.

Saint Desle est considéré comme un saint guérisseur des maladies des petits enfants, mais aussi comme un protecteur du bétail.

Saint Deicola (St Deicolus),

the founder and Abbot of a Monastery in Lure, France

 & Equal of the Apostles and Enlightener of France, from Ireland (+625)

Patron Saint of children & animals

January 18

Saint Deicola (Déicole, Dichuil, Deel, Deicolus, Deicuil, Delle, Desle, Dichul, Dicuil) (c. 530 – January 18, 625) is an Orthodox Western saint. He was an elder brother of Saint Gall. Born in Leinster, Deicolus studied at Bangor.

He was selected to be one of the twelve followers to accompany St. Columbanus on his missionary journey. After a short stay in Great Britain in 576 he journeyed to Gaul and laboured with St. Columbanus in Austrasia and Burgundy.

When St. Columbanus was expelled by Theuderic II, in 610, St. Deicolus, then eighty years of age, determined to follow his master, but was forced, after a short time, to give up the journey, and established an hermitage at a nearby church dedicated to St Martin in a place called Lutre, or Lure, in the Diocese of Besançon, to which he had been directed by a swineherd.

Until his death, he became the apostle of this district, where he was given a church and a tract of land by Berthelde, widow of Weifar, the lord of Lure. Soon a noble abbey was erected for his many disciples, and the Rule of St. Columbanus was adopted. Numerous miracles are recorded of St. Deicolus, including the suspension of his cloak on a sunbeam and the taming of wild beasts.

Clothaire II, King of Burgundy, recognised the virtues of the saint and considerably enriched the Abbey of Lure, also granting St. Deicolus the manor, woods, fisheries, etc., of the town which had grown around the monastery. Feeling his end approaching, St. Deicolus gave over the government of his abbey to Columbanus, one of his young monks, and retreated to a little oratory where he died on 18 January, about 625.

His feast is celebrated on 18 January. So revered was his memory that his name (Dichuil), under the slightly disguised form of Deel and Deela, is still borne by most of the children of the Lure district. His Acts were written by a monk of his own monastery in the tenth century.

St. Deicolus is the Patron Saint of children and he cures childhood illnesses. Also, he is Patron Saint of animals.
