Saint Odo the Good
St. Odo was the Archbishop of Canterbury, also known as Odo of Canterbury. Born in c.870 to Danish parents in East Anglia, England, he joined a Benedictine monastery at Fleury-sur-Loire and then was appointed bishop of Ramsbury, in Wessex.
In 942, Odo became archbishop of Canterbury, wielding both secular and spiritual authority with fairness and deep concern for the welfare of the people.
He assisted in the formulation of the legislation of Kings Edmund and Edgar the Peaceful, created as a separate diocese the region of East Anglia, and gave his blessings to the monastic reforms of St. Dunstan at Glastonbury, thereby promoting the revival of monasticism in England.
St. Odo died in 959. He is known as “the Good” because of his famed holiness.
St. Odo the Good, pray for us.
