ST. IVO OF KERMARTIN-PATRON SAINT OF LAWYERS

  • Born to a wealthy Breton noble family. From age 14 he studied civil and canon lawyer, philosophy, and theology in Paris and Orleans. Franciscan tertiary. Lawyer who practised in both civil and ecclesiastical courts, often defending the poor without charge, and ministering to them in prison while they awaited trial. Practised great personal ascetism, with frequent fasts, and wearing a hair shirt under his clothing. Fought the state over taxes and the rights of the Church. Incorruptible diocesan judge, refusing the bribes that were the order of the day, and working to settle claims out of court in order to save the litigants time and money. Noted preacher and arbitor, he built a hospital from his own funds, tended the poor in it, and gave away the harvests from his land to feed them.
  • SANCTUS IVO ERAT BRITO, ADVOCATUS ET NON LATRO, RES MIRANDA POPULO. (ST. IVO CAME FROM THE LAND OF BEEF, A LAWYER, HE, BUT NOT A THIEF; A STRETCH ON POPULAR BELIEF.)
