St. Deochar †847

St. Deochar with the boy healed of blindness

 St. Deochar is considered an intercessor for persons with visual impairments; during his earthly sojourn, a young boy was healed of blindness by his prayers. See http://saints.sqpn.com/saintd2h.htm  

(Imperfectly translated from the original German:)  

 A farmer’s son went blind after the theft of Votivaugen. The intercession of the Holy Father Deocarus restores the son’s sight.
Eyes made of wax, wood or metal were taken by blind or visually impaired as votive offerings to the Sanctuary.
