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.

Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.
