ST. CADROE, C.
HE was a noble Scotsman, son of count (or rather
laird) Fokerstrach, and travelling into France, he took the monastic
habit at Saint Bennet’s on the Loire. He afterwards reformed
the monastery of St. Clement, at Metz, in 960, and died in a visit
which he made to Adelaide, mother of the emperor Otho I., at
Neristein, about the year 975. His relics are kept at St. Clement’s,
at Metz, and he is honored on the 6th of March. See Mabillon, sec. 5,
Ben. p. 480, and sec. 6, p. 28; Henschenius; and Calmet, Hist. de
Lor.1. 19, n. 67, p. 1011.
