ST. MUNDE, ABBOT

SEVERAL churches bear the name of this saint in Argvleshire in Scotland, in which he was formerly honored as principal patron, and which he edified by the shining light of his example, and by his zealous preaching in the tenth century. He governed there a great monastery, founded several others in that province, and left behind him many great models of Christian perfection. His excellent maxims, relating to the most tender and universal fraternal charity, meekness, the love of silence and retiredness, and a constant attention to the divine presence, were handed down to posterity as sacred oracles. St. Munde died in a happy old age, in 962. See King, Hunter the Dominican, De Viris Illustr. Scotiæ, &c.
