Ken Joins The Cult Of St Mochta In An Attempt For Immortality
Butler's "The Lives of the Saints" notes that St. Mochta (Mochteus) never ate a morsel of fat. The result was that the Abbot Mochta lived a very long life, fabled to be three hundred years (but the evidence is that he lived to be about ninety). St. Mochta was a contemporary of St Patrick, who is said to have built the original church in Louth, Ireland and to have appointed St Mochta the first Bishop of Louth.
