Founding Saints of Brittany: The Seven Holy Bishops

 

Stations of the Cross in city named after one of the Seven Holy Founders of Brittany - Saint Pol of Leon

 

St. Corantin's symbol is a fish.  When he was a hermit, a fish appeared near his hermitage. He could cut a piece from the fish every day, and yet the fish remained whole. We can pray to this saint to help us obtain food during the coming famine after the 3 Days of Darkness.
