1st October, St Remigius, Bishop and Confessor

St. Remigius, Bishop and Confessor

"At Reims, in Gaul,"says the Roman Martyrology, "feast of St. Remigius, Bishop and Confessor, who converted the Frankish nation to the faith of Jesus Christ, by baptizing their king Clovis." He died January 13, A.D. 533 and his relics were solemnly translated October 1.

Statuit ei Dominus testamentum pacis, et principem fecit eum: ut sit illi sacerdotii dignitas in aeternum. * Memento, Domine, David, et omnis mansuetudinis ejus.
The Lord made to him a covenant of peace, and made him a prince: that the dignity of the priesthood should be to him for ever. * O Lord, remember David: and all his meekness.
(Ecclesiasticus 45:30 and Psalm 131:1 from the Introit of Mass)

Da, quaesumus, omnipotens Deus: ut beati Remigii Confessoris tui atque Pontificis veneranda solemnitas, et devotionem nobis augeat, et salutem.
Be mindful of our weakness, O almighty God, and since the burden of our deeds is grievous to us, grant that the glorious intercession of blessed Remigius Thy martyr and bishop may protect us.
