Indeed, how good is the Lord: bless his holy name.

Year: B(I). Psalm week: 2.

Other saints: Saint Ferga (c.700 - 784)
Ireland: 27 Nov
Aberdeen: 18 Nov
He is also known as Vergilius of Salzburg. He was born of a noble family and educated in the monastery at Iona. In 745 he left Ireland on pilgrimage. He settled in France, as many Irish pilgrims seem to have done at that time, and was then invited to Bavaria by Duke Odilo. He founded the monastery of Chiemsee, and later became Abbot of St Peter’s at Salzburg. He engaged in controversy with St Boniface, but on Boniface’s martyrdom he became his successor as Bishop of Salzburg in 766 or 767.

As by your will you first strayed away from God, so now turn back and search for him ten times as hard; for as he brought down those disasters on you, so will he rescue you and give you eternal joy.

Afternoon reading (None)Wisdom 1:13-15 ©
Death was not God’s doing, he takes no pleasure in the extinction of the living. To be – for this he created all; the world’s created things have health in them, in them no fatal poison can be found, and Hades holds no power on earth; for virtue is undying.
