Book of Saints – Memmius

main article for Saint MemmiusArticle

(Saint) (August 5) (2nd century) The Saint popularly known in France as Saint Menge. The tradition is that he was one of the zealous men sent by Saint Peter as Apostles into Gaul. The raising of the dead to life and many other miracles are said to have borne witness to the truth of his preaching. He made numberless conversions among the population. He is also credited with having systematically divided his Diocese into parishes and thoroughly organised it. A visit to Rome led to his extending the sphere of his labours into the adjoining districts. His Episcopate is said to have been a very long one, the date of his death being put as late as A.D. 126. As in similar cases regarding the planting of Christianity in Gaul, the time of his Apostolate is challenged by modern investigators.
