FARO (PHARO) (Saint) Bishop (October 28) (7th century) Of a noble Burgundian family, his father, Ageneric, was one of the principal lords at the Court of Theodebert II. His brother, Saint Cagnoald, a monk at. Luxeuil, and his sister, Saint Phara, attained like him to the honours of the Altar. Separating by mutual consent from his wife (Blidechild, afterwards a nun), Saint Faro received the religious tonsure and became Bishop of Meaux, a See which he retained for forty-six years, until his holy death A.D. 672. His zeal and piety, coupled with the gift of miracle-working, drew many holy men and women to Meaux, among others Saint Fiacra.
