Welcome to my Blog! I read where there was a need for English Propers for the Traditional (1962 Missale Romanum - Tridentine) Latin Mass, so I will try posting the prayers and readings each day, if they are available. I will also post some other writings regarding the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the greatest Act of Worship we can offer to Almighty God and the closest we can get to Heaven!
After a vision in his monastery in the Rhos Valley, he set out next day with two monks to Jerusalem to aid the Patriarch. While there his preachingconvertedanti-Christians. Legend says that once while he was preaching, a dove descended to his shoulder to show he had the blessings of the Spirit, and that the earth rose to lift him high above the people so that he could be heard by them all. Another time when was preaching to a crowd at Llandewi Brefi, people on the outer edges could not hear, so he spread a handkerchief on the ground, stood on it, and the ground beneath rose up in a pillar so all could hear.
Custom of the day permitted consanguinarymarriage. Albinus decried this as incest, and fought against it, making enemies in many powerful families who practiced it. He called councils at Orleans in 538 and 541, both of which condemned this and other morals offenses.
Legend says that when he visited Etheria, a womanimprisoned by King Childebert for bad debts, the woman threw herself at Albinus’ feet, and pled for help. A guard made a move to strike her, but Albinus breathed in the man’s face, and he fell dead. Etheria was soon released.
Another time Augin passed a prison tower in Angers, and heard the cries and moans of badly treated prisoners. He pled with the local magistrate for their release, but was refused. He returned to the tower and prayed in front of it; after several hours, a landslide brought down part of the tower, the prisoners escaped, followed Albinus to the church of Saint Maurichies, reformed their ways, and became model citizens and Christians.
The abbey of Saint Aubin in Angers was erected in his memory.
