Another Irish missionary, Saint Ursus of Aosta, evangelized Gaul, or France, in the region of Digne.
Later he served as an archdeacon in the Church of St. Peter outside the city of Aosta, Italy. (The Bishop of Aosta was an Arian, and he refused to serve under him.
He lived a solitary life, praying constantly, working with his hands for his necessities, and comforted and helped those in need. Many wonders are attributed to him.
He is counted as an intercessor for those with rheumatism and kidney disease.
