Patron of Animal Lovers, Ireland, Black Birds, and Ravens Feast Day: June 3
Kevin was a hermit who lived in the land now known as Ireland. His cave still exists and is called “Saint Kevin’s Bed.” He was a Miracle Worker and lived to the age of 120! Kevin preferred the company of animals. During a drought, a generous otter friend started bringing Kevin salmon for the Monks to eat. One of the Monks saw the otter and decided he would capture it and use its hide to make gloves or a hat. Kevin then told the otter what the Monk was planning, and he promptly scurried away, never to be seen again.
