ST. GALMIER, IN LATIN, BALDOMERUS
HE was a locksmith in Lyons, who lived in great
poverty and austerity, and spent all his leisure moments in holy
reading and prayer. He gave his gains to the poor, and sometimes even
his tools. He repeated to every one: “In the name of the Lord
let us always give thanks to God.” Vivencius, abbot of St.
Justus, (afterwards archbishop of Lyons,) admired his devotion in the
church, but was more edified and astonished when he had conversed
with him. He gave him a cell in his monastery, in which the servant
of God sanctified himself still more and more by all the exercises of
holy solitude, and by his penitential labor. He died a subdeacon
about the year 650. His relics were very famous for miracles, and a
celebrated pilgrimage, till they were scattered in the air by the
Huguenots, in the sixteenth century. The Roman Martyrology names him
on the day of his death, the 27th of February.
