Book of Saints – Mansuetus – 19 February


(Saint) Bishop (February 19) (7th century) A Roman by birth, he was on account of his great learning and virtue appointed to the important See of Milan (A.D. 672, about). He held a Synod at Milan, and attended that of Rome convoked (A.D. 680) by Pope Saint Agatho against the Monothelites. He published a controversial treatise against these same heretics, and was in many ways, both by his writings and the example he gave of pastoral zeal, of great service to religion. He died about A.D. 681.
