Book of Saints – Jonas – 22 September


(Yon) (Saint) Martyr (September 22) (Date uncertain.) A companion or disciple of Saint Denis of Paris. He evangelised either the city of Chartres or laboured at some place of similar name (Chartres, now Arpajon) in the neighbourhood of Paris, and eventually won the Crown of Martyrdom. His relics were venerated at Corbeil and in other places. The Acts we have of this Saint are altogether untrustworthy. His date depends on that of Saint Denis, so much controverted, either in the first or in the third century.
