St. Monon, Martyr

HE left Scotland, his native country, and retired into the forest of Ardennes, where he led a holy life in the seventh century. He was massacred in his cell by robbers, and was buried in the village of Nassaw, which at present belongs to the abbey of St. Hubert. His tomb was rendered famous by miracles. There was a church dedicated under his invocation near the city of St. Andrew’s in Scotland, called to this day Monon’s Kirk. See Molanus, addit. ad Usuard, and King, in Calend.  1
