St. Arnulf’s Day in France
St. Arnulf’s Day in France is held on July 18. Arnulf was the Frankish bishop of Metz and lived in about 582-640 years. Three legends are associated with him: about the ring that returned to him, about the fire that receded from him and about the beer that was given to him, to quench the thirst of pilgrims. This event in the second decade of the month July is annual. Help us
The Church celebrates him as a saint locally on July 18. The hagiographic texts make his life a progression towards perfection, in "three stages" of roughly equal length: Arnoul was first a very influential politician, then an important religious when he was appointed Bishop of Metz.
