SAINT SINDULPHUS, PRIEST OF RHEIMS COMMONLY CALLED ST. SENDOU

INFLAMED with a desire to aim at perfection, he left Aquitaine, his native country, and sought for a retreat in the diocese of Rheims, about the beginning of the seventh century. He chose for his residence the village of Aussonce, four leagues from Rheims, where he joined assiduous prayer to the greatest austerities. He was eminent for his knowledge of the scriptures, and for instructing all those who came to consult him. He died before the middle of the seventh century, on the 20th of October, and was buried in the place of his retirement; but his relics were removed in the ninth century to the abbey of Hautevilliers, near Rheims. He is mentioned this day in the Roman Martyrology. See Mabill. Act. SS., t. 1, and part 2, sec. 4; Ben. Flodoard, Hist. Rem.1. 2, c. 9; Baillet, &c.

ST. AIDAN,

bishop of Mayo, is mentioned this day in the Irish Calendar. He died in 768. See Ware and Colgan.
