Book of Saints – Euphronius


EUPHRONIUS (Saint) Bishop (August 4) (6th century) Born A.D. 530 of senatorial family and dedicated to God from his youth, he illustrated by his virtues the See of Saint Martin, being the eighteenth Bishop of Tours. When this city was burned down during his Episcopate, besides comforting and aiding his flock, he re-erected several churches. He died A.D. 573, having been seventeen years a Bishop, and was succeeded by the famous Saint Gregory the Historian.
