Hail, Saintly Priest and Bishop


Today is also the feast of St. Germanus of Paris (d. 576 AD).  St. Germanus was a teacher and Bishop of Paris who cured King Childebert I, one of Clovis's four sons, of a serious disease.  In gratitude, King Childebert built the Abbey of St. Vincent in Paris, which houses the tunic of St. Vincent, and is now known as St.-Germain-des-Pres.

St. Germanus of Paris, pray for us.
