Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Cloud

Outside of Minnesota, today's saint is pretty darned obscure.

Happy feast of St. Cloud!

One of the four sons of Clovis, the King of the Franks, he was given one fourth of his father's kingdom after his death. 

Cloud's family, however, plotted to kill him to take his portion of the land. He escaped with his life, and spent the rest of his time praying in solitude rather than worrying about the land he had lost. 

St. Cloud died in 560.

St. Cloud, pray for us!
