Book of Saints – Justin of Chieti


(Saint) (January 1) (Date uncertain) Some writers describe him as first Bishop of Chieti (South of Italy), and as having lived in the first half of the fourth century. Others have it that he flourished about A.D. 540. The fact that he has been from time immemorial venerated at Chieti led Pope Benedict XIV, after due investigation, to order the inserting of his name in the Roman Martyrology.
