Book of Saints – Antoninus – 31 October


ANTONINUS (Saint) Bishop (October 31) (7th century) During his one year of Episcopate (A.D. 660) Saint Antoninus Pontana, Archbishop of Milan, gave such convincing proofs of being rich in all pastoral virtues that even during his lifetime his flock proclaimed him a Saint. He was interred in the Church of Saint Simplician, where the Milanese Bishops were as a rule buried. In the year 1581, Saint Charles Borromeo after careful investigation, removed his relics, enshrining them under a magnificent altar which he had caused to be constructed in the same church.
