Book of Saints – Juvenal of Narni


(Saint) Bishop (May 3) (4th century) The first Bishop of Narni (Central Italy), ordained, it is asserted, by Pope Saint Damasus. He converted great numbers of Pagans to Christianity; and, having wrought many miracles, fell asleep in Christ, A.D. 369. His body is alleged to have been translated to Toulouse in France, but relics of him are still venerated at Narni. He is associated in the Liturgy with the Martyrs Pope Saint Alexander and his fellow-sufferers; but there is no ground for the erroneous belief that Saint Juvenal also perished by the sword.
