St. Adrian of Canterbury

ArtLogo0826_Adrianos_Martyras

St. Adrian of Canterbury, having declined the papal offer to become Archbishop of Canterbury (twice), nevertheless traveled to England and became abbot of the St. Augustine's Abbey, a place which he developed into a center of classical learning and Catholic identity in England. He was noted for his preaching, teaching and sanctity, even among a population that was sometimes inimical to the Catholic faith.
