Book of Saints – Satyrus

detail from a holy card Saint SatyrusArticle

(Saint) (September 17) (4th century) The elder brother of Saint Ambrose of Milan. He was a layman of singular ability and irreproachable integrity. He had reached man’s estate when he was admitted to receive Baptism, when taken ill while on a journey from Rome. He rejoined his brother and their sister, Saint Marcellina at Milan; but shortly afterwards, to their great grief, passed away in some year between A.D. 379 and A.D. 392. Saint Ambrose wrote his touching Essay, “On the death of a brother,” in praise of Satyrus.
