(Saint) Bishop (January 28) (13th century) “Born at Burgos in Spain (A.D. 1127) on the recapture of Cuenca from the Moors by King Alphonsus IX of Castile, he was appointed Bishop of that city. In his longing to help the poor and afflicted he is said to have spent all his spare time in earning money for them by the work of his hands. It is related that Christ Himself appeared to him in the guise of a beggar to thank him. Conspicuous in life as after death for the miracles wrought at his prayer, Saint Julian went to his reward (A.D. 1208).
