Book of Saints – Guarinus


(Saint) Bishop (February 6) (12th century) Born at Bologna (Italy) of noble family, he entered the Order of Canons Regular. After forty years of Religious life, during which his fame of sanctity became widespread, he was elected Bishop of Pavia; but nothing could induce him to accept the post. However, Pope Lucius II, overruling his reluctance, created him Cardinal Bishop of Palestrina, where his great charity made him universally beloved. Great miracles followed his holy death (A.D. 1159) and led to his being canonised by Alexander III.
