Book of Saints – Felician


FELICIAN (Saint) Bishop Martyr (January 24) (3rd century) Ordained priest by Pope Saint Eleutherius and consecrated Bishop of Foligno, his native city, by Pope Saint Victor, he governed that See till A.D. 250, when the Decian persecution broke out. Though then in his ninetieth year, Saint Felician was arrested and sent to Rome, but died at Monte Rotondo on his way thither. His remains, brought back to Foligno, were some centuries later translated to Metz, where many miracles have been worked at his shrine. At Minden in Westphalia, whither some of his relics were carried in the tenth century, a Feast in his honour is kept on October 20, which has given occasion to a second insertion of his name in the Roman Martyrology.
