Book of Saints – Eucherius – 20 February


EUCHERIUS (Saint) Bishop (February 20) (8th century) Born in Orleans and most piously educated by his mother, he entered (A.D. 714) the monastery of Jumieges in Normandy, where he lived as a monk till A.D. 724. In that year his uncle, the Bishop of Orleans, having died, he was obliged to accept the responsibilities of the Episcopate. In 737, for having reproved Charles Martel because of his encroachments on ecclesiastical rights, he was banished to Cologne and later to the vicinity of Liege. He died in the monastery of Saint Trudo (Saint-Trond) A.D. 743.
