Life of St. Declan of Ardmore (Author: Patrick Power)

chapter 44

With this extraordinary miracle wrought by Declan we wish to conclude our discourse. The number of miracles he wrought,


but which are not written here, you are to judge and gather from what we have written. And we wish moreover that you would understand that he healed the infirm, that he gave sight to the eyes of the blind, cleansed lepers, and gave 'their walk' to cripples; that he obtained hearing for the deaf, and that he healed many and various diseases in many different places throughout Ireland—(things) which are not written here because of their length and because they are so numerous to record, for fear it should tire readers to hear so much said of one particular person. On that account we shall pass them by.
