St. Killian of Wurzburg †689

Sts. Kilian, Colman, and Totnan

 St. Killian was an Irish bishop who made a pilgrimage to Rome and was commissioned (ordained) to evangelize. With Sts. Colman and Totnan he evangelized East Franconia and East Thuringia, which are in the region of modern Bavaria, Germany, where he and his companions were martyred. He is counted in the West as an intercessor for those who suffer from rheumatism and gout.
