“Cletus”?

Abbot Cletus Meagher of Cullman’s St. Bernard resigns – al.com

I am guessing that relatively few monasteries outside Alabama have abbots named “Cletus”.

One response to ““Cletus”?

  1. Cletus comes from the name of the third pope, usually called St. Anacletus. Probably from the Greek word “klaitos,” translated as “glory.” So there might be other monks with that name outside the South.
