Book of Saints – Antiochus – 15 October


ANTIOCHUS (ANDEOL) (Saint) Bishop (October 15) (5th century) When Saint Justus, Bishop of Lyons, had renounced his Bishopric in order to join the Solitaries of Upper Egypt, the priest Andeol was sent to seek him out and induce him to return to his sorrowing flock. His efforts, however, were made in vain, and on his return to Lyons he was himself chosen Bishop. After distinguishing himself by his zeal and firmness, he fell asleep in Christ early in the fifth century.
