St. Pabo, Founder of Llanbabon Monastery in Anglesey, Wales
Died c. 510. Surnamed 'Post-Prydain,' Pabo was the son of a chieftain
on the Scottish border and at first a soldier. Later he came to Wales
and founded the monastery called after him Llanbabon, in Anglesey.
Britain and Brittany are often confused in old hagiographical records
Troparion of St Pabo
Revered "Pillar of Northern Britain" and Light of Monastics, O Father
leaving thy family and homeland, thou didst found on Anglesey a
house of prayer.
May thy example inspire us, O holy one, to respect the monastic virtues
which attain to the salvation of souls.
