Malachy of Armagh: Same-sex soulmate to Bernard of Clairvaux

Malachy of Armagh is an 11th-century Irish saint who died in the arms of his more famous soulmate, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. Their monastic community honored the male couple as “two stars of such surpassing brightness” and a “twofold treasure.” Bernard showered Malachy with kisses during his lifetime and they are buried together, wearing each other’s clothes. Malachy’s feast day is Nov. 3.

This pair is of special interest to the LGBTQ community because of their close, loving same-sex relationship.
