St. Fillan †777

 St. Fillan is counted as an intercessor for persons with mental illness. Born in Ireland, he and a number of members of his family moved to Scotland. In Strathfillin, he built a church. Later he became a hermit, devoting himself to prayer, living in a cave at Pittenween near Fife.
