Book of Saints – Cassius of Narni


CASSIUS of NARNI (Saint) Bishop (June 29) (6th century) A holy prelate, Bishop of Narni, near Spoleto. In his lifetime he gave all he possessed to the poor. He let no day pass without celebrating Mass “with compunction and many tears.” On June 29, 558 (the day he had himself foretold), he yielded up his soul to God at the moment when, having communicated the assistants at the Holy Sacrifice, he was dismissing them with the Kiss of Peace. His shrine is in Narni Cathedral.
