Saint Nonnus prays for Saint PelagiaArticle

(Saint) Bishop (December 2) (5th century) A Syrian Bishop of Edessa, best known for having by his eloquent preaching converted the famous Saint Pelagia, the sinner of Antioch. That he was a man of God is evident from all that we read in the records left of his holy penitent. Saint Pelagia died A.D. 457, and Saint Nonnus probably about the same year.
