Saint Romaric (d. 653)

Saint Romaric (d. 653)

Feast day: December 8

When Saint Romaric’s father was killed on the orders of Queen Brunehilda, the young boy became a homeless nomad. With time and hard work, Romaric’s luck changed. He amassed a great fortune and was a landowner with many slaves. Romaric was enjoying his life of luxury when he met Saint Amatus. The saint changed Romaric’s outlook on life, causing him to willingly give up all of his material wealth and enter into religious life, where he inspired many around him.
