Book of Saints – Gallicanus


(Saint) Martyr (June 25) (4th century) A General in the army of Constantine who, having promised to become a Christian, should he be victorious, defeated the Scythians in the East. He attained to the Consulate at Rome, but, renouncing the world, soon retired to Ostia, where he founded a Hospital and ministered to the sick. Under Julian the Apostate he was banished to Egypt, and there suffered martyrdom A.D. 362. A church was erected at Alexandria over his tomb, and his Feast is still solemnly kept at Rome, where his memory is associated with that of the Martyrs Saints John and Paul.
