|Other saints: Saint Colman of Dromore|
He was active in the late fifth and early sixth centuries. He spent most of his life in the Dromore area of County Down. He was persuaded by Saint Mac Nissi to settle at Dromore in around 514, where he became the first bishop of the See of Dromore. See the article in Wikipedia
|Other saints: St Robert of Newminster (c.1100 - 1159)|
Hexham & Newcastle
He was born at Gargrave, in Yorkshire. He spent the early years of his priesthood as rector of his home town, but later joined the Benedictine community at Whitby. In 1132 he helped to establish Fountains Abbey, which followed the Cistercian rule of St Bernard of Clairvaux. Fountains was to have a daughter abbey at Newminster, near Morpeth, and Robert became the first abbot in 1138/39. Little else is known of him. He died on 7 June 1159.
The theological virtue of hope is symbolized by the colour green, just as the burning fire of love is symbolized by red. Green is the colour of growing things, and hope, like them, is always new and always fresh. Liturgically, green is the colour of Ordinary Time, the season in which we are being neither especially penitent (in purple) nor overwhelmingly joyful (in white).
