Aimo (commonly known as Saint Aimo, also Aymon or Hamon) was a mystic and monk. Born in an area near Rennes, France, Aimo entered the Benedictine monastery of Savigny, in Savigny, Normandy. There he took care of two monks who had leprosy, and it was believed that Aimo himself had contracted the disease.[1] This led the superiors to designate him a lay brother, and they required Aimo to keep apart from the rest of the community, lest the illness spread. When it was seen that he did not have leprosy, Aimo was ordained a priest. Aimo is mainly remembered for charitable kindness especially to the sick and for his mystical experiences.[2]
