|Not Saint Maimbod|
Maimbod (aka Mainboeuf, Maimbodus of Domnipetra) was a well-born, good-looking Irish kid with a mind for the holy life. He left his wealthy family, dressed like a pauper, and went to the Continent to spread the Word of the Lord. Although he had no particular destination nor intention to stay in one place, he made a habit of visiting the shrines and sacred spots as he traveled. He was celebrated for resisting all temptations offered by the Devil as well as for his strict asceticism.

Locals began reporting miracles at his tomb. Count Aszo of Montbeliard asked Bishop Berengarius of Besançon if he'd permit Saint Maimbod's relics to be translated to Montbeliard. The Bishop agreed, but being blind, asked his coadjutor Bishop Stephen to officiate. At some point during the ceremony, Berengarius' sight was restored to him, confirming Maimbod's place in the canon.
