Book of Saints – Innocent of Tortona


(Saint) Bishop (April 17) (4th century) Born of Christian parents about A.D. 280, at the age of about twenty-two, he was (under the persecuting edict of Diocletian) seized and scourged on account of his religion; and only by a miracle escaped death. When Constantine had given peace to the Church, Innocent took orders, and in A.D. 325 was consecrated Bishop of Tortona in Italy. He passed away about A.D. 347.
