ST. VAUGE, HERMIT

HE was a holy priest in the church of Armagh, who, to fly the archiepiscopal dignity, retired into Cornwall. He landed at Penmarch in that county, and being honorably received, built himself a hermitage, yet often went out to preach to the people, and kindle in their breasts the most ardent desire of Christian perfection. He was called to receive the recompense of his labors on the 15th of June, 585. Under the name of St. Vorech he seems titular saint of Llanlivery in Cornwall.
