Saint of the Day – 6 June – Saint Jarlath of Tuam (c 445-c 540)

Saint of the Day – 6 June – Saint Jarlath of Tuam (c 445-c 540) Priest, Bishop, Abbot, Scholar, Founder of the Monastic School of Tuam and of the Archdiocese of Tuam, in Galway, Ireland. The Féilire of Aengus, tells us that he was noted for his mortification, fasting, and prayer. Born in c 445 at Connaught, Galway, Ireland and died in c 540 of natural causes. Patronage – The Archdiocese of Tuam, Ireland. Also known as – Iarlaith, Iarlath.

Very little is known about the life of Jarlath. He firstly studed under Benen, a disciple of St Patrick and then became a disciple of St Enda at Arran Island. The Monasteries he founded, first at Cloonfush and later at Tuam, were renowned for their scholarship and learning.

From the second syllable of his name in Irish, fhlaith, meaning “lord,”,it could be taken that he came from a wealthy family.

He own first monastic foundation was at Cloonfush, some miles east of Tuam. His students at the monastic college included Saint Brendan of Clonard and Saint Colman of Cloyne.

Jarlath appears briefly as a prominent figure in the medieval Irish Lives of St Brendan of Clonfert. Brendan is said to have visited Connacht to study under the famous Jarlath. One day, when Jarlath was in his old age, Brendan advised his mentor to leave the school and to depart in a newly built chariot until its two hind shafts broke because there would be the place of his resurrection and that of many after him. Because Jarlath acknowledged the holiness and superior wisdom of his pupil, saying “take me into thy service forever and ever,” he gladly accepted his advice. His travel did not take him very far, as the shafts broke at Tuaim Mound. From this incident, the chariot wheel has become the symbol of the Town of Tuam.

The Diocese was established by the twelfth-century synods of Rathbreasail and Kells and subsequently became an Archdiocese absorbing into it two other medieval Dioceses: Annaghdown and Mayo.

Jarlath died, “full of days,” on 26 December, c 540, aged about 90 years old. Saint Jarlath’s Feast day is 6 June, which is the date of the translation of his relics to a Church especially built in his honour next to the Cathedral of Tuam. His remains were encased in a silver Shrine, from which the 13th-century Church gained the name Teampul na scrín, that is the “Church of the Shrine.

Solemnity of Corpus Christi , Panna Mária / Blessed Virgin Mary, Pozba, Nové Zámky, Nitra, Slovakia 1512 and Memorials of the Saints – 6 June

Solemnity of Corpus Christi – The Most Holy Body ad Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ +2021 – celebrated today in many countries, where Thursday was not a Holy Day

Panna Mária,/ Blessed Virgin Mary, Pozba, Nové Zámky, Nitra, Slovakia 1512 – Second Sunday after Feast of the Ascension:

In 1512, the Pauline Fathers built a Marian Shrine, in the southwest Slovakian Town of Vel’ké Lovce. In the 1700s is was a popular place of pilgrimage.
One day in those years, shepherds and pilgrims, observed a white dove bathing in a spring in the woods five miles away, outside the village of Pozba.
The story circulated that a shepherd’s blind daughter regained her sight after washing her eyes with the dove’s bathwater. The landowner made fun of this, wondering if the spring could help his blind horse. It did, but he went blind instead.
A sick girl saw the Virgin, wearing a white dress and blue sash, in a pear tree and was immediately cured. From the wood of this tree, a Pietà was carved, still venerated in a Chapel by the spring, which hosts annual pilgrimages on Pentecost Sunday and on 15 September, Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows.
