Here's a good link to stuff about St Faro (it's TIA, but the information is sound): http://www.traditioninaction.org/SOD/j04...o10-28.htm

Selected text;

Faro was born around the year 585 into a noble family in Burgundy, France. His sister was St. Fara, famous for her miracles and the Convent she founded.

St Faro had the gift of counsel, which he used to help the unfortunate and oppressed.

When St. Faro fought for his Faith against pagans like the Saxons or Moors, his zeal would have been doubled since the fight for a religious ideal is one that engages the entire man and multiplies his strength.


There's lots more... St Faro was a fascinating man, who lived a full and holy life. Felix should be proud of his little brother's namesake (even if St Faro never did become pope  :laughing:)
