Book of Saints – Aquilinus – 29 January


AQUILINUS (Saint) Martyr (January 29) (7th century) A priest who was put to death near Milan by the Arians. A Bavarian by birth, he had refused more than one Bishopric out of desire to serve God in a more lowly capacity. He was a successful preacher, and, his zeal against the dangerous heresy of Arianism having drawn him to preach in Lombardy, his enemies sought and found an opportunity to have him assassinated, about A.D. 650. His relics are venerated at Milan.
