Obscure Saint of the Day: Blessed Christian O'Conarchy

The day after St. Patrick's Day can only mean one thing...

Happy Feast of Blessed Christian O'Conarchy!

Beyond the fact that Christian was the abbot of the first Cistercian monastery in Ireland, practically nothing at all can be stated about Christian with any certainty. 

The legends about him are both confusing and conflicting. 

However, it is almost a sure thing that he received his habit from the St. Bernard, which is pretty awesome. 

Blessed Christian O'Conarchy, pray for us!
