Odo of Cambrai, BLESSED, bishop and confessor, called also ODOARDUS, b. at Orleans, 1050; d. at Anchin, June 19, 1113. In 1087 he was invited by the canonsof Tournai to teach in that city, and there soon won a great reputation. He became a Benedictine monk (1095) in St. Martin's, Tournai, of which he became abbot later. In 1105 he was chosen Bishop of Cambrai, and was consecrated during a synod at Reims. For some time after he was unable to obtain possession of his see owing to his refusal to receive investiture at the hands of the Emperor Henry IV, but the latter's son Henry restored the See of Cambrai to Odo in 1106. He labored diligently for his diocese, but in 1110 he was exiled on the ground that he had never received the cross and ring from the emperor. Odo retired to the monastery of Anchin, where he died without regaining possession of his diocese. Many of his works are lost; those extant will be found in Migne, CLX (P.L.).

"Deo Gratias!"
-- Oliver Plunket, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of all Ireland, Saint; after being sentenced to death, he joyfully declared "Thanks be to God" in front of all; on July 11, 1681, Pluncket was the last martyr at Tyburn, victim of the notorious Lord Shaftesbury and his chief perjured witness, Titus Oates, both of whom were subsequently thrown in jail.
