Saints Alive

We have missed mentioning several saints who are worthy of mention. On the 15th St. Ita, "The Bridget of Munster" and "The Foster-Mother of Saints", was honoured in Ireland and particularly in her home place of Killeedy. Her holy well can be seen here. (Click on "local sites".)

The 16th is the feast of the Franciscan martyrs Berard, Otho, Peter, Accursius, and Adjutus. They went to Morocco during St. Francis' lifetime, preaching Christ in mosques and treating Mohammed as an imposter.
