St. Leodegar †678

blinding of St. Leodegar

 

St. Leodegar (0r Leodegarius), Bishop of Autun, was blinded, tortured, and killed for his support of a claimant to the throne, Childeric, who failed in his bid.

He is counted as an intercessor for persons who are blind, visually impaired, and also for those who have sore eyes.

 The following websites recount his life; the first in summary, the second in more detail, and the third with the most detail:
