Book of Saints – Romanus – 28 February

Saint Romanus of CondatArticle

(Saint) Abbot (February 28) (5th century) A native of Gaul, and brother of Saint Lupicinus. At the age of thirty-five he established himself as a hermit in the Jura mountains, between France and Switzerland. Many disciples soon gathered around the two brothers, who thereupon founded several monasteries. Saint Romanus (writes Saint Gregory of Tours) “persisted to the day of his death (A.D. 461) in simplicity of life and in the doing of good works, especially in charitably visiting and caring for the sick.”
