St. Bartholomew of Farne (d. 1193) was born in England. He traveled to Norway, where he was ordained a priest.

When he returned home, he joined the Benedictine order and became a hermit on the island of Farne. There, Bartholomew lived a very strict life dedicated to God.

The saint knew when he was going to die and told some other monks. When he died, they buried him on the island.

Bartholomew was known for miracles and holiness, and we remember him on June 24.
