Saint Amabilis of Auvergne (or Riom) †475

St. Amabilis of Riom

St. Amabilis is an intercessor for persons suffering with mental illness. 

He lived before the schism between East and West, and so there is good reason for an Orthodox Christian to seek his prayers for their healing, without qualms that he was from the West (France).

Apparently he began as a cantor (singer or chanter of hymns) and became a parish priest at Riom, France.

Here are the two online sources on him:

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own
    but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Thank you
