January 1 : Eugendus, abbot (c. 510)

Eugendus or Oyend, abbot (c. 510) (a.k.a. St.Oyend) 

Died c. 510. Saint Eugendus was the fourth abbot of Condat Monastery in Mount Jura near Geneva, Switzerland, which was later called after him Saint-Oyend (and still later Saint-Claude). He entered the abbey at age seven and lived there until his death at 61. Eugendus was known for the most extreme austerity and simplicity of life, for his spirit of almost continual prayer, and for his meekness and good cheer (he was said to be of joyful countenance, although he never smiled). He refused to be ordained a priest.(Benedictines, Encyclopedia)
