Saint Maurelius of Voghenza-Ferrara

Memorial

Profile

Bishop of Voghenza, Italy, the modern titutal diocese of Vicohabentia; may have been the last bishop of that diocese before the area was joined to the diocese of Ferrara, Italy.

That’s what we’re relatively sure about. The legend writers, though, they invented all kinds of things – he was the king of Mesopotamia who abdicated to become a wandering priest, that he met the pope who saw his obvious holiness and consecrated him a bishop, that his first Mass as bishop was accompanied with choirs of angels, etc.
