Book of Saints – Matronianus


(Saint) (December 14) (Date uncertain) A native of Milan who, after spending his youth in the conscientious discharge of his public duties as a citizen, and in the practice of his religion, was inspired by Almighty God to lead the life of a hermit. The tradition is that he was led by an Angel to a place of utter solitude, and that the same Angel daily brought him food and, when his death approached, administered to him the Holy Viaticum. His body is said to have been accidentally discovered by a hunter and brought to Milan, where it was enshrined by Saint Ambrose.
