Saint Paulinus of YorkArticle

(Saint) Bishop (October 10) (7th century) A Roman monk sent to England with Saints Mellitus and Justus (A.D. 601) by Pope Saint Gregory the Great, to aid Saint Augustine, the Apostle of the country, in his labours. Consecrated Bishop by Saint Justus (A.D. 625), Saint Paulinus accompanied the Kentish Princess Ethelburga, who had espoused King Edwin of Northumbria, to the North of England, and as first Archbishop of York, baptised the King and an immense number of his subjects. He moreover planted Christianity at Lincoln and elsewhere in the Midlands. On the death of Edwin, Paulinus again attended his Widow on her return to Kent. He died (A.D. 644) as Bishop of Rochester.
