St. Remigius became archbishop at the age of 22. His pity and charity were boundless. By converting Clovis, the king of the Franks, he made Christians of that whole nation.
Well done, good and faithful servant, because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. — Gospel, Matthew 25
The Imitation of Christ
And if thou couldst make a choice, thou oughtest to prefer to suffer adversities for Christ, than to be delighted with much consolation; because thou wouldst more resemble Christ, and be more likened to all the saints.
This saint brought King Clovis into the Church, as you know from your history. He lived as far back as AD 533 and has been greatly responsible for the Christianizing of all of France.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord! — Queen of Heaven
