Book of Saints – Vincent of Lerins

Saint Vincent of LerinsArticle

(Saint) (May 24) (5th century) Of a noble family in Gaul, he had elected a military career for himself; but, favoured with a singular grace by Almighty God, he retired to the Isle of Lerins, off the Mediterranean coast of France, where he became a monk and received priests‘ Orders. Being of great ability he occupied himself in writing on the Church controversies of his time. His book, called the Commonitorium, is constantly cited, even in our own day, and is undoubtedly a work of real value. Saint Vincent died in his monastery, A.D. 450.
