Book of Saints – Felix of Brescia


FELIX of BRESCIA (Saint) Bishop (February 23) (7th century) The twentieth Bishop of Brescia in Lombardy, which Diocese he governed during over forty troublous years. He struggled successfully against the Arian Bishop, intruded into his See by Rotharius, King of the Lombards, and energetically opposed the inroads of the heresy, then making its last great effort against the Catholic Faith. He was a zealous pastor, and built and endowed several churches. The date of his death, about the middle of the seventh century, is variously given.
