15th November - Saint Fintan - Independent Catholic News

15th November - Saint Fintan - Independent Catholic News: Hermit. Born in Leinster, in the 9th century, St Fintan was captured and made a slave by Vikings who took him to the Orkneys. Fintan escaped and was protected by a Scottish bishop whose name has been lost. To give thanks for his rescue, Fintan made a pilgrimage to Rome. On his way back he joined a group of hermits on an island in the Rhine near Schaffhausen, where he spent the rest of his life.
