Book of Saints – Paul de Leon

Saint Paul AurelianArticle

(Saint) Bishop (March 12) (6th century) One of the most illustrious of the galaxy of Saints (David, Samson, Gildas, etc.) educated in the School and Monastery of Saint Illtyd at Llantwith-Major. After years of training in the monastic life Saint Paul, responding to a Divine call, crossed over into Brittany with twelve companions. He there founded Religious communities and was himself consecrated Bishop of a See fixed at Ocismor or Leon (Lyonesse), now called after him, Saint Pol, in the present Diocese of Quimper. He was favoured by God with many supernatural gifts and was indefatigable in the discharge of his Pastoral duties. Previous to his holy death (A.D. 570), he had retired anew to his monastery in an island off the Breton coast.
