Book of Saints – Apollonius – 7 July


APOLLONIUS (Saint) Bishop (July 7) (2nd century) A Bishop of Brescia in Lombardy, mentioned in the Acts of Saints Faustinus and Jovita, as having ordained the former, priest, and the latter, deacon. He is said to have nourished from about the year 112 to 140. But in the Analecta Bollandiana, both the period of the Episcopate of Saint Apollonius and the Acts of Saints Faustinus and Jovita are called in question. However this may be, Saint Apollonius was buried in the church of Saint Andrew at Brescia, and his relics are preserved there in the Cathedral of the Assumption.
