Memorial

Profile

Sixth-century hermit at the foot of Mount Caro in the area of Blois, France living in a small cell protected from the outside world by thorny brush. Coming to believe that such a complete withdrawal from his fellow man to spend a life in prayer was somewhat selfish, Eusician embarked on a mission of doing good works; known as a healer, especially of children and of throat ailments in particular. Saint Gregory of Tours wrote about his reputation for spiritual wisdom.
