St. Celine is best known as the mother of St. Remigius, Bishop of Rheims at the time of the conversion of the people of Gaul under Clovis.  Very few details about her life are known.  About 438, at an advanced age, she miraculously gave birth to St. Remigius.  The hermit, Montanus, who had three times foretold the birth of the saintly Bishop, received his sight. She lived a holy life of prayer and doing good works.  She died about the year 458.  She was buried near Lyons.  Her relics were destroyed during the French Revolution.
