Saint’s Biography

Saint Modoald of Trier was the son of Arnulf and the brother of Saint Severa of Saint Gemma. He was an uncle to Saint Gertrude of Nivelles, Saint Begga of Ardenne and Saint Modesta of Trier. Modoald spent most of his life in close contact with the Merovingian kings and became advisor to King Dagobert I of the Franks. 

In 628 Modoald became bishop of Trier in Germany. King Dagobert I, at whose court he was, assigned him to the episcopal diocese of Trier even at a young age, but this did not prevent the young bishop from reproaching the sovereign for the immorality of the Frankish royal court.
