St. Dunstan of Canterbury

Christ is risen!!! Joyous feast! St. Dunstan is one of the lights of the Roman Orthodox Church in England. He successively lived as a monk in Glastonbury and (Ghent in the Netherlands), served as a royal counselor in England, became Bishop of Worcester in 957, and finally was appointed Archbishop of Canterbury in 961. He takes much of the credit for the revival of monasticism in 10th century England and fell asleep peacefully in Canterbury in 988. More on St. Dunstan's life can be found here. May his blessing and prayers be with us all!
