SAINT BALDOMERUS (A.K.A. SAINT GALMIER) (DIED CIRCA 660)

Roman Catholic Monk

St. Baldomerus/Galmier was a locksmith in Lyon, France.  His reputation for holiness preceded him.  Late in life, he accepted ordination (at the hand of Viventius, Abbot of St. Justus Monastery, Lyon) as sub-deacon and moved into a cell adjacent to the monastery.  He spent the rest of his life praying and meditating.

O God,

whose blessed Son became poor that we through his poverty might be rich:

Deliver us from an inordinate love of this world,

that we, inspired by the devotion of your servant Saint Baldomerus,

may serve you with singleness of heart,

and attain to the riches of the age to come;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.  Amen.
