St. Cadoc of Llancarvan †580

St. Cadoc

 St. Cadoc

is counted in the West to be an intercessor for persons with hearing problems and deafness, as well as scrofula and glandular disorders. He was from Wales. 

A monastic, he spread the faith of Christ in both Wales and Brittany (Northern France), establishing Churches in these places. In addition to the monastery at Llancarvan in Wales, he built a stone monastery in Scotland.  He also lived with St. Gildas as a hermit on a small island off the coast of Brittany for a time. 

All Saints Parish in Brookline, Massachusetts has made available an online life of St. Cadoc, with an icon of him and many interesting stories:

The Wikipedia entry on St. Cadoc  associates him with King Arthur. There is also mention of the locale in Brittany where “he is called upon to cure the deaf:”   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadoc
