Book of Saints – Mathurin


(Saint) (November 1) (4th century) A French Saint, said to have been born of Pagan parents whom he himself afterwards converted to Christianity. He attributed his own conversion to the zeal of Polycarp, Bishop of Sens. Ordained priest, he became a fervent and successful preacher, and his merits and talents led eventually to his being called to continue his work in Rome. He died there A.D. 388. His remains were later taken back to France, and his shrine until the Revolution of the end of the eighteenth century was a popular place of pilgrimage.
