Fr Ronan Kilgannon said...

Dear Matthew, peace.
Am disappointed that St Ronan does not appear in the Litany. There are 14 noted in the 6th and 7th centuries in hagiographies. My own patron saint was an Irish Bishop who left Ireland in a boat with sail but no rudder or oars and became a hermit in Brittany. The ancient township of Locronan (Locus Ronani) has a church dedicated to him. St Ronan pray for us. Amen.
