Den hellige Declan av Ardmore (+d. ~500)

Minnedag: 24. juli

Skytshelgen for Waterford and Lismore i Irland

Den hellige Declan (Declán, Déclán, Déaglán; lat: Declanus) ble født en gang på 400-tallet i Desi (Decies) i grevskapet Waterford i den sørlige provinsen Munster i Irland. Hans fødested blir sagt å være Drumroe near Cappoquin vest i grevskapet Waterford. Det er en del forvirring om hans kronologi, men det synes mest sannsynlig at han var biskop i Waterford-området. Før den hellige Patrick av Irland (Pádraig) (ca 389-461) kom til Irland i 432, hadde landet forbindelser med kontinentet og med Wales, og folk fra det sørøstlige Irland hadde allerede slått seg ned i Wales. Disse forbindelsene har nok ført til innføringen av kristendommen og trolig også av klostervesenet som det ble praktisert i Gallia, selv om flertallet av irene fortsatte å være hedninger.

I følge Declans biografi tilhørte han gjennom sin far det dominerende kongelige dynastiet i regionalkongeriket for folket Déisi Muman. I en beretning med navnet Tugaid Ionnarbhna na nDéise, «Årsaken til utvisningen av Déise», sporet dette dynastiet sin opprinnelse gjennom ulike konger av Tara til Meath, hvor deres navn fortsatt er bevart i de lokale baroniene Deece.

Declan ble født mens foreldrene Erc og Dethiden (Deithidhe) besøkte en onkel som bodde mellom dagens Cappoquin og Lismore i Waterford. På dette stedet er det i dag en gammel kirkegård og spor av fundamenter for en kirke. Foreldrene var da ennå ikke kristne, men en prest ved navn Colman overtalte foreldrene til å døpe barnet. En annen versjon sier at han syv år gammel ble sendt til en viss Dimma (Díoma) for å oppfostres. Hun blir sagt å ha vært en utlending og kristen og bodde enten i Kildimo i Caonraighe (Kenry) i grevskapet Limerick, i området til det mektige dynastiet Dál gCais (Uí Bhriain), eller i Connor i grevskapet Antrim. Mens Declan var i Dimmas varetekt, ble han omvendt og døpt av en av de utallige irske helgenene ved navn Colman, trolig enten den hellige Colman av Kilcolman nær Ardmore eller den hellige Colman av Lismore.

Declan studerte senere i en slags celle sammen med to eller tre andre, men det er ingen grunn til å betrakte dette som noen slags monastisk grunnleggelse. Det synes som om Declan deretter reiste til kontinentet for å fortsette sine studier og at han ble presteviet og muligens konsekrert til biskop,

Declan hadde en så stor lengsel etter å vende tilbake til Irland fra Roma, at han brukte en mirakuløs svart klokke som han hadde i sin besittelse, til å tilkalle en tom farkost for å transportere ham hjem. Klokken var plassert i en kampestein, og da Declan ba, fløt steinen ut i sjøen.

Han fulgte etter den og til slutt førte den ham til lands i Ardmore (Ard Mór, Árd Móre, Aird Mhór) i baroniet Decies i Drum i det nåværende grevskapet Waterford. Der arbeidet Declan pliktoppfyllende blant folket og bygde en kirke.

Kampesteinen, som i virkeligheten er en flyttblokk befinner seg fortsatt på stranden i Ardmore og kalles St. Declan’s Stone.

Han begrenset ikke sitt arbeid til Ardmore og regionen Déise, men han reiste også lenger unna og spesielt til Cashel. Det første Declan gjorde da han kom hjem, var å besøke Cashel, som tradisjonelt var senteret for den verdslige makten i Munster og da biografien ble skrevet, også sete for den sørlige erkebiskopen. Han skal ha vært på svært vennskapelig fot med kong Aengus av Munster, så hans innflytelse må derfor ha vært betydelig.

Fra Ardmore evangeliserte Declan i områdene rundt dagens Waterford og Lismore, selv om han mislyktes med å kristne kongen for Déisi-folket. Han grunnla kirken i Ardmore etter at han var vigslet til biskop, og det ble stadfestet som bispesete av Patrick på synoden i Cashel i 448. Da Declan ble gammel, trakk han seg tilbake til en eneboercelle der, og gamle bygninger indikerer at det både har vært et kloster og en eneboercelle der. I tillegg er det en hellig kilde.

Declan døde en gang sent på 400-tallet, og ifølge hans biografi døde han i sitt kloster i Ardmore og ble deretter gravlagt der. Over hans antatte grav står restene av et tidlig oratorium som er kjent som Declan’s House. I Ardmore finnes omfattende ruiner, inkludert et vakkert og perfekt rundtårn og en katedral fra 1100-tallet som er bygd over restene av en eldre kirke.

игумен и епископ Ардморский, Ирландия(+V век)

День памяти: 24 июля

Святой Деклан родился на территории племени десси, что в Уотерфорде (Ирландия) и считался его покровителем.

Он был ирландским монахом, который был крещён Колманом из Дромора и стал учеником.

Он, вероятно, проповедовал Евангелие до прибытия в те края святого Патрика. Он, быть может, совершил два паломничества в Рим, а затем стал первым епископом Ардмора, что было подтверждено св. Патриком во время синода в Кашеле в 448 году. Известны многие чудеса св. Деклана, который был весьма почитаем племенем десси.

Saint Begnet of Ireland & her Holy Well in Dalkey Island, Ireland (+7th century) – November 12

Saint Begnet of Ireland and her Holy Well

in Dalkey Island, Ireland (7th century)

Feast day: November 12

p1010676a.jpg

Saint Begnet (also Begneta, Begnete, Begnait or Becnait) is a patron saint of Dalkey, Ireland. The name Begnet is most likely a diminutive form of Beg or Bec. She is noted as a “virgin, not a martyr”. St Begnet was an Irish princess who lived in the 7th century. Her feast day is November 12. Two ruined churches in Dalkey are named for Begnet, one on Dalkey Island, and the other near the 15th-century stone townhouse now serving as Dalkey Castle and Heritage Centre, in the area known as Kilbegnet. A holy well located near the martello tower on the island is also associated with her.

St Begnet’s father was Colman, the son of Aedh in the parish of Kilbegnatan (Kilbegnet or Cill Becnait). Like many other female virgin saints, she is described as beautiful and desirable, but she refused her numerous suitors in favor of religious devotion. Her social status is sometimes given as “Irish princess”, and thus she would have been a valuable bride. She is said variously to have lived as an anchorite or to have served as the first abbess of nuns on a small island off the coast of England.

She gave her name to the two churches in the area and Dalkey town and surrounding area was for many centuries known as Kilbegnet. Perhaps she came from Dalkey, or perhaps she sailed from here to pioneer her religious order. It may also be possible the churches were dedicated to her memory by missionaries, spreading the faith after her death.

As a child, St Begnet was visited by an angel who gave her a bracelet inscribed with a cross as a mark of her vocation.

St Begnet grew up to become a beautiful woman and had many suitors. Her parents arranged her marriage to the son of the King of Norway. But still dedicated to the vows she had taken, Begnet had no wish to take a husband. To avoid marriage, she left home, leaving everything but the bracelet given to her by the Angel. She found passage in a small boat and sailed to Northumbria on the West Coast of England. There she was received into the Church by Bishop Aidan and became the first abbess of nuns. Her convent was constantly plundered by pirates, so after several years Begnet moved inland towards Cumberland.

Her bracelet became an object of veneration after her death.

St Begnet’s Church

The 9th century granite church named after the virgin Saint, St Begnet, probably replaced an earlier wooden church dating back to the Early Christian period. The Nave dates to the 10th century and later the Bellcote and Chancel were added in the 13th century. Inside the Nave on the eastern side of the doorway is a Stoup and there is an Ambry built into the southern wall of the chancel. Scattered throughout the graveyard are a number of decorated headstones and on the northern side of the church is a rare Tau Cross.

Rathdown Slab

In the Dalkey heritage centre there is the Rathdown Slab. The slab was found in the graveyard surrounding St Begnet’s Church in 1855. The Rathdown Slabs are usually linked to churches dated to the 11th and 12th century. The first slabs were recorded by Austin Cooper in 1781 and since then the number of viking slabs has risen to around 30. This particular slab is one of the finest examples and standing at about 5 ft tall one of the largest. It is thought the slab may have been decorated originally with viking art such as the cup marks, but that a number of christian symbols such as the large ring with a cross in the centre, may have been added later. Other examples have been recorded at Kilgobbin Church, Rathmichael Church, Whitechurch, Ballyman, Kiltiernan, Tully Church, Killegar and more recently in Dundrum.

Saint Palladius 1st Bishop of Ireland & Scotland, from France (+450) – July 6

Saint Palladius 1st Bishop of Ireland & Scotland, 

from France (+450)

July 6

Saint Palladius was the first Bishop of the Christians of Ireland, preceding Saint Patrick.

The Palladii were thought to be amongst the most noble families of Gaul, and several of them held high ranks in the Church of Gaul. Saint Palladius was the son of Exuperantius of Poitiers.

Saint Palladius held the (higher) rank of Deacon of Rome.

Saint Palladius was married and had a young daughter. In Rome, he kissed his family goodbye in the manner of the Apostles, and lived as an ascetic in Sicily around 408-409, giving his daughter to a convent on that island. He seems to have been ordained as a priest around 415. He lived in Rome between 418–429, and appears to be the “Deacon Palladius”, responsible for urging Pope Celestine I to send the bishop Germanus to Britain, where he guided the Britons back to the Orthodox faith.

Ireland

In 431, he have been sent as the first bishop to the Christians of Ireland: Palladius, having been ordained by Pope Celestine, is sent as first bishop to the Irish believing in Christ. Palladius landed at Hy-Garchon, where the town of Wicklow now stands.

Irish writers that chronicled the life of St. Patrick state that St. Palladius preached in Ireland before St. Patrick, although he was soon banished by the King of Leinster, and returned to North Britain. According to Muirchu (who lived two centuries later) in the Book of Armagh, God hindered him…and neither did those fierce and cruel men receive his doctrine readily, nor did he himself wish to spend time in a strange land, but returned to him who sent him. Palladius was accompanied by four companions: Sylvester and Solinus, who remained after him in Ireland, and Augustinus and Benedictus, who followed him to Britain but returned to their own country after his death. Palladius is most strongly associated with Leinster, particularly with Clonard, County Meath.

Scotland

According to St. Prosper, Palladius arrived among the Scots in North Britain (in the consulate of Bassus and Antiochus) after he left Ireland in 431. Scottish church tradition holds that he presided over a Christian community there for about 20 years.

 

St Palladius’s Chapel

5th century shrine is among the earliest Christian sites in Scotland.

Fordoun was the site of a chapel founded by the 5th century saint, Palladius, who is said to have preached and died here.

The saint’s relics were preserved in a silver shrine with the chapel that he built at Fordoun.

The chapel – also known as Paldy Kirk – was the mother church for the Mearns region. The ruins of a 13th century chapel built on the site of the original 5th century building can still be seen beside the later church and there is still a well known as St Palladius’s Well in the grounds of the manse.

The ancient ruins were rebuilt in the 16th century and again in 1788. In 1828 the roof collapsed and the chapel was finally abandoned in favour of the new and much grander building we see today. Within the ruined 13th century building is a holy water stoup and an aumbry in the north wall. The three large lancets are a 17th century addition.

The most intriguing feature in the chapel ruins is not above ground however. Protected by a metal grate are stone steps leading down into the earth to a crypt unse the chapel floor.

One plausible theory is that the crypt was where the relics of St Palladius were held, and where pilgrims came to visit his shrine. King Kenneth III was one of those piulgrims; it is said that he was on his way to Fordoun when he died in 994 AD.

In the vestibule of the church is the Fordoun Stone, a beautifully carved Pictish cross slab. This was discovered in 1787 when the pulpit of the chapel was pulled down. The cross may have been hidden here during the Reformation. It shows a marvellously intricate cross and traditional pictish symbols, plus inscriptions in Ogham and a Roman script.

There are several interesting old gravestones near the chapel (some actually leaning agaimst the chapel wall). One stone to William Christison has a rather pointed reminder (literally); a finger points upwards to the heavens above, and a single word is carved – ‘Home’.

Palladius was the first Christian missionery in northern Scotland. He was ordained a priest by Pope Celestine in 430 AD, and is thought to have preached in Ireland before arriving in the Mearns area of Scotland. Presumably he found the natives less than receptive, for his martyrdom occurred not long after his arrival.

The chapel is accessible at any time.

Saint Declan Bishop of Ardmore, Ireland (5th ce.) – July 24

Saint Declan

Bishop of Ardmore, Ireland (5th ce.)

July 24

Saint Declan of Ardmore (Irish: Declán mac Eircc, Latin: Declanus, died 5th century), was an early Irish saint of the Déisi Muman, who was remembered for having converted the Déisi in the late 5th century and for having founded the monastery of Ardmore (Ard Mór) in what is now Co. Waterford.

Like Saint Ailbe of Emly, Saint Ciarán of Saigir and Saint Abbán of Moyarney, Saint Declan is presented as a Munster saint who preceded Saint Patrick in bringing Christianity to Ireland. He was regarded as a patron saint of the Déisi of East Munster.

It was through his father that Declán belonged to the royal dynasty of the Déisi Muman. Saint Declan’s mother Dethiden or Dethidin. Saint Declan’s birthplace is said to be Drumroe, near Cappoquin (west Co. Waterford).

Saint Declan first embarks on a journey to Rome, where he studies and is ordained bishop by the Bishop of Rome. At Rome, he meets his fellow countryman St Ailbe of Emly, and on returning to Ireland, he meets St Patrick. St Declan recognises the supreme authority of both saints and with Patrick he comes to an arrangement about the sphere of their mission in Ireland. On St Patrick’s instructions, St Declan founds the monastery of Ardmore (Irish Ard Mór), which lies near the Irish coast, in the southeast of the kingdom of the Déisi Muman, and having obtained Patrick’s blessing, goes on to convert the Déisi to Christianity.

Saint Declan is contemporary of Saint David of Wales in the 6th century. Likewise, the even later saint Ultan of Ardbraccan (d. 655-657) is presented as Declán’s pupil.

The saint later paid a visit to the Déisi of Mide/Meath, where the King of Tara welcomed him and granted him land for the purpose of founding a “monastery of canons”. The monastery founded there became known as Cill Décláin (Kilegland, Ashbourne, Co. Meath).

Saint Declan is one of four Munster saints who they founded monasteries and preached the Gospel in Munster before their younger contemporary St Patrick ever set foot in Ireland. These bishop saints, also included St Ailbe of Emly, St Ciarán of Saigir and St Abbán of Moyarney. The same claim was apparently made for St Íbar of Beggery Island, according to the Life of St Abbán, which identifies him as St Abbán’s uncle and teacher.

According to his Life, St Declan is reposed in the Lord at his monastery in Ardmore and was subsequently buried there. His feast day in the martyrologies is 24 July.

Also, St Declan was responsible for introducing rye (Irish secal, from Latin secale) into Ireland.

The path walked by Declan from Ardmore to Cashel, County Tipperary has been restored as St Declan’s Pilgrim Path.

A round tower still stands at the site of the saint’s monastery at Ardmore as well as earlier ecclesiastical ruins, such as a stone oratory and a small stone church.

Святой Мэл (St Mel ) Ирландии (+488)

6 февраля

Святой Мэл (St Mel ) Ирландии (умер 6 февраля 488) — христианский миссионер, епископ, один из наиболее почитаемых среди ирландских святых.

Святой Мэл прибыл в Ирландию вместе со святым Патриком, одним из наиболее известных и почитаемых христианских святых, покровителем Ирландии. Мэл приходился Патрику племянником, ибо был сыном его сестры Дарекки. Святой Мэл стал св. Патрику преданным соратником и помощником на пути обращения островитян из язычества в христианство.

В 454 году святой Патрик построил в Лонгфорде церковь Арда (Ardagh), куда лично назначил настоятелем Мэла. Этой церкви святой Мэл посвятил остаток своей жизни и после смерти был погребён возле её стен. Мел жил аскетично, деньги на жизнь и содержание прихода Мэл добывал собственным трудом, отдавая все излишки нуждающимся прихожанам.

Святой Мэл широко известен тем, что именно он принял монашеский обет святой Бригиты и по ошибке рукоположил её в епископы. Когда святой Макайле (англ. Macaille) выразил свой протест произошедшему, то святой Мэл заявил, что рукоположение останется в силе, ибо всё случившееся произошло по воле Божьей.

San Mel di Ardagh, Irlanda (+488)

6 febbraio

San Melis di Ardagh, o anche Mel (Irlanda, … – 6 febbraio 488), fu un sacerdote missionario e vescovo irlandese; è venerato come santo dalla Chiesa.

Fu il fondatore della Diocesi di Ardagh, nella contea di Longford, in Irlanda.

Come molti santi antichi, non si ha una biografia dettagliata. Si pensa sia figlio di Conis e Darerca, sorella di San Patrizio, che accompagnò il fratello in Irlanda per iniziare la sua opera di evangelizzazione. Mel divenne missionario molto giovane e San Patrizio gli affidò una chiesa che costruì ad Ardagh, in seguito Mel vi costruì un monastero. Divenne poi sacerdote e venne consacrato vescovo di Ardagh. Fu anche il vescovo che mise il velo a Santa Brigida. È patrono di Ardagh.

Si dice che fosse molto generoso e dava sempre quanto poteva ai poveri tenendo per sé il minimo indispensabile. Mel viveva con sua zia Lupait, e si diffuse un pettegolezzo secondo il quale ci sarebbe stato un rapporto tra i due, tanto che lo stesso Patrizio si mise ad indagare, ma Mel e sua zia erano molto pii ed entrambi pregarono per ricevere un miracolo: Patrizio andò a parlare con Mel riguardo alla vicenda, Mel stava arando e dal terreno saltò fuori un pesce vivo; mentre Lupait per provare la sua innocenza ha trasportato carbone ardente senza bruciare né lei né i suoi vestiti. Patrizio rimase così soddisfatto e non dubito più di suo nipote.

Saint Indract, St Dominica & their Companions,

Martyrs in Shapwick, England, from Ireland (+718)

February 5

The Irish Saints at Glastonbury c.700

On this day in the Old English Calendar commemorated SS Indractus, Dominica and their Companions. We have to rely on William of Malmsbury for information about these Martyrs, who were venerated at Glastonbury Abbey. Indractus was an Irish chieftain, who had been to Rome on pilgrimage with his wife, Dominica, and nine others, and on their return journey they decided to visit the “Second Rome”, as Glastonbury was called, because of its holy associations.

There is a tradition that both S. Patrick and S. Bridget spent some time at Glastonbury, and there is a district called Beckery, where Bridget is supposed to have founded a Convent at the foot of Weary-all Hill. It was at Mass in the Chapel of St. Mary Magdalene there, according to the History of John of Glastonbury, that King Arthur had the vision of the Cross and Our Lady with the Holy Child, which is commemorated in the Arms of the Abbey. Another Irish Saint claimed as a visitor to Glastonbury is Benignus, locally known as S. Bennings, who was servant and successor to S. Patrick. He settled at Meare three miles to the west, where he died, and his body was translated to the Abbey in 901, some four hundred years later.

These Irish connections may well have been an added attraction to Indractus and his fellow pilgrims, who settled in the district of Shapwick. The local people were heathen and thought the party were wealthy merchants, whereas their scrips only contained parsley and other seeds to be taken back to Ireland, and their pilgrim staves were tipped with brass and not gold. When they had killed them, the natives threw their bodies into a deep pit, but a column of light appeared by night revealing the grave of the Christian martyrs. Their bodies were taken up and buried in the Abbey in the eighth century during the restoration under King Ina.

Saint Modan was the son of an Irish chieftain. He became a monk and built a chapel at Dryburgh, Scotland, in 522 which he used as a base for several years. This later became the site of a monastery: Dryburgh Abbey.

He was a Missionary in the Falkirk and Stirling areas, and along the Forth, in Scotland continuing until he was elected abbot, a post which he accepted reluctantly. After a number of years he resigned and became a hermit, settling in the Dumbarton area, where he eventually died. His relics were enshrined at Rosneath, Scotland.

Святой Модан (St Modan) был сыном вождя одного из племён Ирландии. Он стал монахом и в 522 году построил часовню в Дрибурхе (англ.) (Dryburgh), Шотландия, около которой впоследствии возник монастырь Дрибурх (англ.) (Dryburgh Abbey).

Он вёл активную проповедь от лица кельтской церкви в окрестностях Фолкерка и Стерлинга, а также вдоль Ферт-оф-Форта, покуда не был избран настоятелем, место которого он занял неохотно. Через несколько лет он оставил настоятельство и стал жить отшельником, поселившись около Дамбартона (Dumbarton), где и отошёл ко Господу. Его мощи почивают в храме св. Модана в Росните (англ.) (Rosneath).

Святая Ия (St Ia) Корневилльская Из Ирландии (+450)

Святая Ия Корневилльская Из Ирландии (V век) — принцесса, христианская мученица. Память 3 февраля.

Святая Ия Корневилльская (валл.: Ia), известная также как Хия (лат. Hia), или Эйа (Eia), или Ив (англ. Ives), была просветительницей Корнуолла, по преданию была ирландской принцессой, сестрой св. Эрка (Erc), Юни (Euny) и Анты (Anta). Она была обращена в Христову веру св. Патриком Старшим и решила отправиться с просветительской миссией в Корнуолл, вместе со свв. Фингаром (Fingar) и Фиалой (Piala).

Предание гласит, что они уплыли без неё. Оставшись на берегу и горько рыдая, она вознесла свою молитву ко Господу. Внезапно её внимание привлёк плававший перед нею маленький листик плюща. Она коснулась его посохом, намереваясь потопить, но количество листьев стало приумножаться, и они образовали плот, на котором она и переправилась через Ирландское море, прибыв в Пенвис (англ.) (Penwith), что в Корнуолле, даже раньше тех, кто оставил её на берегу.

Там она стала духовной ученицей св. Бервина (Berwyn), иначе Барика (Baricus, Barric), и вскоре она объединила свои усилия со св. Элвином (Elwyn) и его 777 соработниками.

Она основала храм в Пен Динас (англ.) (Pen Dinas), и её святой источник Вентон Эйа (Venton Eia), иначе Ффинан Ия (Ffynnon Ia) был неподалёку от Портмеора (Porthmeor). Она также построила часовню в Труне (Troon), что в приходе Кэмборн (англ.) (Camborne) неподалёку от другого источника, называемого Фентон Иар (Fenton Ear), или Ффинон Иа (Ffynnon Ia). Вероятно, она бывала и в Бретани, где Плуйе (англ.) (Plouyé) неподалёку от Карэ-Плуже (Carhaix) назван в честь неё.

Присутствие Ии не всем было по душе в тех краях — она была умучена на реке Хейл (англ.) (Hayle) и похоронена в местечке, называемом нынче Сент-Айвс (St Ives), что в Корнуолле, покровительницей которого она почитается. Над её могилой там была воздвигнута церковь, освящённая в её честь.

Святую Ию изображают одетой в белую шерсть, как ирландскую игумению, иногда с белой вуалью, иногда в короне и держащей листья.

Saint Mochuda (St Carchach) of Lismore, Ireland (+639)

May 14

Saint Mochuda or Saint Mo Chutu mac Fínaill (died 14 May 639), also known as Carthach or Carthach the Younger (a name Latinized as Carthagus and Anglicized as Carthage), was abbot of Rahan, County Offaly and subsequently, founder and first abbot of Lismore (Irish Les Mór Mo Chutu), County Waterford.

Through his father, Fínall Fíngein, Mo Chutu belonged to the Ciarraige Luachra, while his mother, Finmed, was of the Corco Duibne. Notes added to the Félire Óengusso (the Martyrology of Óengus) claim that his fosterfather was Carthach mac Fianáin, that is Carthach the Elder, whose period of activity can be assigned to the late 6th century.

Mo Chutu first became abbot of Rahan, a monastery which lay in the territory of the southern Uí Néill. He composed a rule for his monks, an Irish metrical poem of 580 lines, divided into nine separate sections, a notable literary relic of the early Irish Church.

According to the Annals of Ulster, he was expelled from the monastery during the Easter season of 637. The incident has been connected with the Easter controversy, in which Irish churches were involved during the 7th century. Through his training in Munster, Mo Chutu may have been a supporter of the Roman system of calculation, which would have brought him into conflict with adherents of the ‘Celtic’ reckoning in Leinster.

Following his expulsion, Mo Chutu journeyed to the Déisi, where he founded the great monastery of Lismore (in modern County Waterford). The Latin and Irish Lives make very little of Mo Chutu’s earlier misfortune and focus instead on the saint’s resistance to the oppressive Uí Néill rulers and his joyous reception among the Déisi. He has been portrayed in a heroic light in Indarba Mo Chutu a r-Raithin (The expulsion of Mo Chutu from Rahan).

His foundation at Lismore flourished after his lifetime, eclipsing the reputation of the saint’s earlier church. It was able to withstand the Viking depredations which plagued the area and benefited from the generosity of Munster kings, notably the Mac Carthaig of Desmond. In the 12th century, St Déclán’s foundation of Ardmore aspired to the status of episcopal see in the new diocese, but the privilege went instead to Lismore.

His feast day in the Irish martyrologies is 14 May, as well as in the Great Synaxaristes of the Orthodox Church. In the present calendar of the Catholic Church in Ireland, in which 14 May is the feast of Saint Matthias, the memorial of Saint Carthage is celebrated on 15 May.

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.
