Saint Finnian was an early Irish monastic saint.  He is considered one of the fathers of Irish Monasticism and is sometimes called a “teacher of the Irish Saints.”  He was born in the late fifth century.  He founded a monastic community and traveled on to Clonard where he built himself a cell and a little church where he settled in to study, pray and practice mortification.  The fame of his sanctity soon spread and scholars from all over began to flock to him.  He then built a monastery and began to teach.  His rule was known for its strictness and asceticism.  No fewer than three thousand pupils were studying at one time under Saint Finnian.  His gift for teaching inspired many great men who then helped spread the faith far and wide.  Saint Ciaran of Clonmacnoise and Saint Columba of Iona are among the many who studied under him.  Saint Finnian died of the plague in 549.  His sister, Regnach, is also a Saint.

His feast day is December 12.
