ST. ODUVALD, ABBOT, C.

THIS saint was a Scottish nobleman, and governor of the province of Laudon, who, renouncing the world, entered the abbey of Melrose. His joy upon this occasion he expressed by singing those verses of the Psalmist: In the departing of Israel out of Egypt, &c.,1 and, The snare is broken, and we are delivered. &c.2 During the whole course of his monastic life he was remarkable for his continued advancement in spiritual fervor, and his gift of tears and constant prayer. His sighs after heaven were crowned with a joyful and happy death, in 698, ten years after St. Cuthbert. See Chronica Sconensia, et Elphiston; Paslatensis Liber, et Sigebert in Chronico.
