Book of Saints – Auxentius – 18 December


AUXENTIUS (Saint) Bishop (December 18) (4th century) At one time a soldier in the army of the Emperor Licinius, he had to suffer, like other Christians, for refusing to take part in heathen sacrifices. But he survived the persecution and, embracing the Ecclesiastical state, in due course became Bishop of Mopsueste in Cilicia (A.D. 321). The date of his death is not given.
