St Enoch


Today we celebrate the feast of one of Glasgows very own saints – St Enoch

St Enoch is not only a Glaswegian saint but also a pro-life saint.

She is known as “Scotland’s first recorded rape victim, battered woman and unmarried mother”. A princess thrown out by her father because of her pregnancy, she was rescued by St Serf, the leader of a monastery.  She not only survived in some of the most difficult circumstances but went on to raise her son to be a saint. How can we not be inspired by her strength, courage and love.

In Smug’s mural on George Street, we see a modern-day interpretation of St Enoch cradling St Mungo. Captured on an ordinary Glasgow street is the love of a mother for her child regardless of the hardship she has faced.
