(Saint) Bishop (May 13) (4th century) A Bishop of Tongres in the Low Countries, whence the See was later transferred to Maestricht. Saint Gregory has left us a long account of Saint Servatius and of the many miracles he wrought. He made a remarkable prophecy, foretelling the invasion of the Huns, which was fulfilled a century later. One of his merits was his having given hospitality to Saint Athanasius, when the latter had been driven from Egypt by the Arians. Saint Servatius died A.D. 384.
