Tombeau de saint Gaud dans l'église de Saint-Pair-sur-Mer - France
France

Saint Gaud († 491), aurait été évêque d'Évreux de 440 à 480. Il est vénéré comme thaumaturge. Fête le 31 janvier.

Saint Gaud est né dans une riche famille d'Évreux vers l'an 400. Touché par les profanations perpetrées par les habitants après la mort de Saint Taurin, il entreprit de restaurer la religion chrétienne dans sa région. Aussitôt, il prêcha l'Évangile et consruisit des églises.

Il aurait été évêque d'Évreux pendant 40 ans avant de se retirer en 480 pour finir sa vie dans la Forêt de Scissy où il mourut aux environs de l'an 491.

Les miracles survenus près de ses reliques étaient innombrables, le peuple lui rendit hommage par l'adage suivant : « le bienheureux Saint Gaud guérit de tous les maux ». Il est réputé pour guérir tout particulièrement les maladies nerveuses des petits enfants, et les dépressions.

Il est révéré à Saint-Pair-sur-Mer où un autel lui est consacré. Les parents y venaient autrefois faire bénir les langes de leurs enfants et les préserver ainsi de la maladie. Les pèlerins adressent aujourd'hui leurs demandes sur un registre ou bien sur les billets de demandes de messes.

France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor.
