WULFRAN

Wulfran was in the court of King Clotaire III for some years.  In spite of the seductions of the world, Wulfran practiced virtue.  His father was an officer in the court of King Dagobert.  Wulfran was ordained and consecrated Archbishop of Sens.  After two and a half years, he resigned his position because of the possibility that his Bishopric was not valid.  St. Amatus, its rightful Bishop, was in exile.  After a retreat in the Abbey of Fontelelle, he went to Friesland as a missionary.  There he converted a son of King Radbod and many others.  He fought against human sacrifices.  He returned to Fontelelle and died there March 20.

FEAST DAY:  March 20
