St. Momble of Lagny, Abbot
(Mummolus (Mumbolus, Momleolus)

18 November

Died c. 690. The Irish monk Saint Mummolus was a companion of Saint Fursey (f.d. January 16), whom he succeeded as abbot of Lagny, in the diocese of Meaux. But he did not remain in that position long because too many of his monks thought that his rule was too strict. So Mummolus retired to a hermitage where he lived out his days in secluded prayer. His relics were translated and solemnly enshrined in 831 in the diocese of Meaux (Benedictines, D'Arcy, Fitzpatrick, Gougaud, Montague, O'Hanlon).
