Book of Saints – Leo of Troyes


(Saint) (May 25) (6th century) A monk who succeeded Saint Romanus in the government of the monastery which the latter had built, under King Clovis, near Troyes (France). On account of his virtues and supernatural gifts, Saint Leo was greatly venerated both in life and after his holy death (the day and hour of which he had predicted) by the clergy of the Diocese of Troyes. No vestige now remains of his monastery, except a Cross erected to mark its site at Mantenay-Saint-Lie.
