August 12 -- St Ségéne
August 12 is the commemoration of the fifth abbot of Iona, Saint Ségéne. . . . Saint Ségéne had a long and interesting reign as a successor to Saint Colum Cille of Iona. He was one of those related by blood to the founder and he featured prominently in the Paschal Dating Controversy. Abbot Ségéne was one of those implacably opposed to accepting the Roman computation for the date of Easter.
Always delighted to find another liturgical traditionalist.
