Rev. Alban Butler (1711–73).  Volume VIII: August.
The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
August 27
St. Malrubius, Hermit and Martyr
 
HE 1 led an eremitical life in Scotland, entirely occupied in penitential works, and in the exercise of holy contemplation. The incursions of the idolatrous Norwegians induced him to quit his desert, in order to administer comfort to his countrymen, and, if possible, to convert the barbarians. With this view, the servant of God began to preach to them the truths of the gospel; but death was the recompence of his charity, the Norwegians having cruelly murdered him. His martyrdom happened in the province of Mernis, about the year 1040, in the reign of King Duncan. See Lesley and Adam King.  1
 
Note 1. He is not to be confounded with St. Malrubius, who is honoured on the 21st of April. [back]
