Happy St. Maewyn Succat Day
What? Oh, sorry. You know him as St. Patrick. He was little Maewyn Succat at home in Scotland with his parents, Calpornius and Conchessa. Dad was a Roman diplomat, and Mom was a niece of St. Martin of Tours, a Hungarian who grew up in Italy but mostly lived in France. Then Maewyn got grabbed by pirates and sold to the Irish. It’s a familiar story, not unlike many of our own family histories.
