    St. Bertulf of Bobbio

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    Saint Bertulf (died 640) was a German who converted to Christianity. He was the son of a pagan nobleman and was a near relative of Arnulf of Metz, whose example had such an influence on Bertulf that he became a Christian and in 620 entered the monastery of Luxeuil.


    A few years later he became acquainted with Abbot Attala, who had come to Luxeuil on a visit, and, with permission of Abbot Eustace of Luxeuil, joined Attala's community at Bobbio in Italy. Upon the death of Attala in 627, Bertulf was elected by the monks of Bobbio as their abbot. Like his predecessor, he insisted on the observance of the austere rule introduced by St. Columban, the founder of Bobbio Abbey, and preached fearlessly against Arianism, which had gained a firm foothold in Italy under the Lombard kings.


    When the Bishop of Tortona endeavoured to bring Bobbio under his own jurisdiction, Bertulf hastened to Rome, where Pope Honorius I received him kindly and granted the monastery entire exemption from episcopal jurisdiction. Jonas, a monk of Bobbio, who accompanied Bertulf on his journey to Rome, relates that, while returning to his monastery, Bertulf was attacked by a deadly fever, and cured miraculously by St. Peter. The same author ascribes a few other miracles to the prayers of St. Bertulf. Most martyrologies give him the title of saint. His feast is celebrated on August 19.

    The Celtics have officially introduced their newest members. The Celtics did not get no big name free agents to come this way.

    Office Genomics, Pain Paradox in Family Medicine

    in Health

    How might we look at genomics in office practice in Family Medicine?  Dr. Jonas, your host for the Dr. Synonymous Show, will dream a bit about what we are doing now and what might be.


    Responding to patients with painful situations is challenging in Family Medicine.  We love our  patients.  They hurt- we help.  But, their brain might get dysregulated by the pain via "wind-up" and potentially by opiate medications for persistent moderate or severe pain.  With FDA tightening up on prescribing rules for , many more patients are seeing their doctor monthly.  How do we respond to their frustrations at having to come in monthly for their pain management?


    Pain is a paradox in Family Medicine.  Listen in for further discussion.
