Facts

Feastday: April 10
Death: 1058

Irish/Scottish hermit. Paternus or Padarn was born either in Ireland or Scotland and joined a monastery Going to Westphalia, he was one of the first monks to enter the Abdinghof Monastery under the leadership of St. Meinwerk. Paternus lived as a hermit in one of the cells. Such was his obedience to the vow of enclosure that when a fire erupted and engulfed Abdinghof, he would not leave his cell, and so burned to death. He was much honored by St. Peter Damian, and soon after the fire, the burned cell was visited by Blessed Marianus Scotus.
