About St. Ives . . . Born to a wealthy Breton noble family on October 17, 1253. From age 14 he studied civil and canon law, philosophy, and theology in Paris and Orleans. He practiced law in both civil and ecclesiastical courts, often defending the poor without charge, and ministering to them in prison while they awaited trial. St. Ivo practiced great personal asceticism, with frequest fasts, and wearing a hair shirt under his clothing. He was an incorruptible diocesan judge, refusing the bribes that were the order of the day, and working to settle claims out of court in order to save the litigants time and money. Ordained in 1284. In 1287 he resigned his legal position to tend to his parishioners at Tredez and Lovannec. Noted preacher and arbitor, he built a hospital from his own funds, tended the poor in it, and gave away the harvests from his land to feed them. He died on May 19, 1303 and was canonized in 1347.
