Martyred king of Austrasia. The son of King Sigebert II , Dagobert took the throne as a child and was forced into exile. Bishop Dido of Poitiers, France, took him to Ireland when Childebert was named king. Dagobert regained his throne in 675 , but he was murdered only four years later. Ebroin, the mayor of the palace, slew him on December 23 while on a hunt­ing trip. Dagobert was a friend of St. Wilfrid.

St. Dagobert, faithful and true, with our sadness,
but above all, with God's most merciful Grace,
please hear us ad come to the help and defense of
the unborn and the helpless...

Amen

A life not fulfilled in Christ is no life at all.
Where true Charity is, there is where Our Blessed Lord is.
Therefore, in this world of Souls, we need to be like St. Paul.
May the Most Holy Trinity, be always Praised and Adored in Heaven
and on earth, forever and ever.
