Caradoc, Saint, Priest, and Hermit
Caradoc, Saint, Priest, And Hermit, was a Welshman of Brecknockshire, who held an honorable post at the court of Rhesus, a Welsh prince. Falling into disgrace with the king, he withdrew to a solitude, was ordained priest, and then retired with some companions to the island of Ayr. The bishop of St. David's sent him to the monastery of St. Hismael, in Ross, or Pembrokeshire; and, when Henry I of England conquered those parts, St. Caradoc and his fellow monks suffered bitter persecution. He died on Low Sunday, April 13, 1124, and was buried in the cathedral of St. David's. :See Butler, April 13.
