Book of Saints – Maurilius


(Saint) Bishop (September 13) (5th century) A native of Milan, where he studied under Saint Ambrose and the future Saint Martin of Tours. He followed the latter into Gaul, and in due course was raised to the Bishopric of Angers (A.D. 407). The story is related of him that, fearing the responsibilities of a Pastor of souls, he fled to England, and there found employment as a gardener; but that, recognised at last, his clergy insisted on his return to his Diocese. He died A.D. 453. All the ancient Martyrologies make mention of him and of the miracles he wrought. The people of Anjou were devoted to him, both alive and dead.
