(Saint) Bishop (May 23) (9th century) A disciple of Saint Tarasius, Patriarch of Constantinople, by whom he was consecrated Bishop of Synnada in Phrygia. Saint Tarasius also chose Michael as the bearer of his Synodal Letter to Pope Saint Leo III in Rome. Saint Michael was distinguished by his fearless opposition to the Iconoclast Emperor Leo the Armenian. He was banished into Galatia, where he went from place to place spreading everywhere the light of the Faith, in spite of continuous persecution. He died about A.D. 820.
