Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Bobo

I have officially found my favorite obscure saint name...

Happy Feast of St. Bobo!


Bobo was a crusader and eventual hermit. 

He was a knight in France, who fought against the invading armies, and afterward made the epic decision to finish his life as a hermit. 

Bobo died in the year 985 while on pilgrimage to Rome. 

St. Bobo, pray for us!
