St. Romanus of Condat †460

After spending some time at a monastery, St. Romanus went to dwell in forest in order to devote himself to prayer. Other like-minded brothers joined him there, and great grace was upon them. And so a monastery was established there at Condate, near Mount Jura, close to the border between France and Switzerland. The holiness of St. Romanus and these brothers, as well as the wonders that happened in this place drew many more, and more monasteries sprung up in the forest, some for men and others for women. St. Romanus was eventually ordained a priest by St. Hilary of Poitiers.

St. Romanus of Condat is counted as an intercessor for persons with mental health issues.
