Saint Just Ascetic

Reposed 6 century Remembered January 13

Information on this saint is lacking; however he is remembered in two places in Cornwall. The first is St Just in Roseland situated on a luxuriant tidal creek near St Mawes on the estuary of the Fal. There is a holy well in the lovely gardens. The other is St Just in Penwith near Land’s End. He may have been the son of a Cornish King; his companion was St Selus (Selevan) whose gravestone now in the church may go back to the 5C. It has on it a ChiRho monogram in use in Roman times – there were others at St Helen’s chapel and at Phillack. There is a wonderful Christ Regnant in the churchyard.
