Saint Saturninus of ToulouseArticle

(Saint) Bishop Martyr (November 29) (3rd century) This is Saint Sernin, the Saint of Toulouse. He was a missionary sent from Rome by Pope Saint Fabian (A.D. 251) to preach in Southern Gaul, where he founded the Bishopric of Toulouse. Saint Sernin, after converting a multitude of heathens, was arrested in the persecution under Valerian (A.D. 257), and put to an exceptionally cruel death, being fastened behind a wild bull which dragged him about until he was dashed to pieces.
