AGRICOLA (AGRICOLUS) (Saint) (September 2) (7th century) The son of Saint Magnus, a Frankish noble, who late in life took Holy Orders and eventually was promoted to the See of Avignon. Saint Agricolus, his son, entered the monastery of Lerins as a Religious, and there acquired a great reputation for piety and learning. Summoned by his father to Avignon, he speedily made himself beloved and esteemed by clergy and laity alike, and was in due course called to occupy that Metropolitan See. He governed his Diocese for forty years to the great profit of his people, and died A.D. 700, in the sixty-fourth year of his age.
