Book of Saints – Lazarus of Milan

Article

Lazarus of Milan (Saint) Bishop (February 11) (5th century) An Archbishop of Milan who was the support of his flock during the invasion of the Ostro-Goths. By his zeal he won during his eleven years of Episcopate the love and admiration of all. To him, as to Saint Mamertus of Vienne, is attributed the institution of the Rogation Days. He died March 14, A.D. 429; but his Feast Day was fixed on February 11, in deference to the Milanese usage of not keeping Saints’ Days in Lent.
