Saint Ciarán of Clonmacnoise


The 9th of September is the feast day of Saint Ciaran of Clonmacnoise (512-546 A.D.), he is also known as Ciarán the Younger, or Ceran, Kieran and Queran. He is the patron saint of Connacht.

Saint Ciaran lived between 512 to 546 A.D. His father was a carpenter and he was born in Connacht Ireland. He was educated by a holy deacon who also baptised him. He would tend to the cattle but after this, he entered the Saint Finnian’s monastery school to further his education where he became a monk. There he gained a reputation for performing miracles and for his learning aptitude. He mentored and tutored many of Ireland’s Catholic Church founders. Saint Ciaran left Clonard and founded Clonmacnoise Abbey that is in West Meath Ireland. The Abbey attracted thousands of students across Europe. Saint Ciaran is one of the first twelve bishops in Ireland consecrated by Saint Patrick and is also the first Irish-born saint.

My children, as a mother, as the Queen of Peace, I am calling you to accept my Son so that He can grant you peace of soul - that He can grant you that which is just, which is good for you. My children, my Son knows you. He lived the life of man, and at the same time of God: a wondrous life-human flesh, divine Spirit. Therefore, my children, while my Son is looking at you with His eyes of God, He penetrates into your hearts. His tender, warm eyes are looking for Himself in your heart. My children, can He find Himself [there]? Accept Him, and then the moments of pain and suffering will become moments of tenderness. Accept Him, and you will have peace in [your] soul - you will spread it to all those around you - and this is what you now need the most. Heed me, my children. Pray for the shepherds, for those whose hands my Son has blessed. Thank you.
