Description

Oil Dedicated to St Finnian of Clonard

St Finnian of Clonard from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.

Finnian was born toward the end of the fifth century in County Carlow. When he was introduced to the Christian Church, it awoke a hunger in him for learning. In response to that hunger for knowledge, he traveled to Britain and then to France to study.

In Tours, he spent time at St. Martin’s Monastery. He sacrificed physical comfort to learn more about religion. He then went to Wales to perfect himself and studied at the monastery of Cadog the Wise. After 30 years, he returned to Ireland and established a church near the river Barrow. He taught at St. Brigid’s monastery.

Over the years, he had no fewer than 3000 pupils who would learn about Sacred Scriptures and biblical scholarship. He known for sleeping on a cold floor and wearing an iron girdle for penance.

St. Finnian of Clonard known as “The Master of the Saints of Ireland” and his day of feast December 12.

Trained by Sts. Cadoc and Gildas in Wales, Finian returned to Ireland where he built schools, monasteries, and churches. Clonard at Meath was his most famous foundation, and under his direction it became a renowned scriptural school.
