Book of Saints – Gerard of Potenza


(Saint) Bishop (October 30) (12th century) Born at Piacenza, he was enrolled among the clergy of Potenza in the South of Italy, and, on account of his virtues, elected Bishop of that city, although already advanced in age. He died in the ninth year of his Episcopate (A.D. 1119). Several miracles having borne witness to his sanctity, Pope Callistus II canonised him a few years later.
