Lives of the Saints:

How They Changed the World

Saint Cagnoald (d. 635)

Saint Cagnoald (d. 635)

Feast day: September 6

Saint Cagnoald began religious life after meeting Saint Columban. The religious path that he chose to take was the life of a monk. Cagnoald's love for and devotion to Jesus were shared by many members of his family as well, including his brothers, Saints Faro and Burgundofara. In time, he grew in his religious life and became the bishop of Laon, France. Unfortunately, no image of Saint Cagnoald could be found. The icon shown here is appropriate, however, due to Cagnoald's devotion to Jesus and his Mother, Mary.
