Saint Jodocus: Patron Saint against Fire (Feast Dates: December 13, January 9, July 26) Extract from Saint Jodocus: Seventh century king in Brittany, the son of King Juthael of Amorica. Following a pilgrimage to Rome, Italy c.636, he abdicated. Ordained at Ponthieu. Hermit at Runiacum, which was later renamed Saint-Josse-sur-Mer. Felt a special call to pray for sailors. In the early 10th century, refugees from Brittany to England brought some of his relics with them, mainly clippings from his hair and nails which were reported to continue to grow after his death; they were enshrined in Winchester Cathedral. Joducus, often under the name Josse, was very popular in Middle Ages England, even used in oaths by the Wife of Bath in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.” PICTURE: Roundel with Saint Jodocus and St. Clare of Assisi.
