Saint Aldegunis – Saint of the Day

This Merovingian abbess is the patron saint of those with cancer. She walked across the River Sambre to found a hospital and monastery  at Maubeuge.  The Merovingians, a Frankish people, were not the descendants of Jesus Christ. Sorry about that.

Paten and Chalice, from the Trésor de Gourdon, gold, turquoise and garnets, uncovered in Saône-et-Loire in 1845. Rights here.
