Saint Terenzio of Imola

Also known as

  • Terencio



Terenzio grew up beside the cathedral in Imola, Italy, and early saw life in the Church as just part of life in general. Deacon. He felt called to move to Faenza, Italy where he lived near the church of Santa Croce, working with the poor and serving at Mass. He one day healed a blind man in from Imola by praying for him. It drew him so much attention and admiration that he fled the city to live as a hermit in the forest outside San Pietro in Laguna, Italy. There he continued a ministry of healing, but insisted on his solitude. Warned of his coming death by an angel, Terenzio spent his final days with his fellow hermits, giving them recommendations for their spiritual lives.
