Saints of the Day – Bretannion of Tomi, Bishop

Saint Bretannion of TomiArticle

Died c.380. When Saint Bretannion bravely defended the divinity of Christ, the Arian Emperor Valens exiled him from his see of Tomi in Scythia on the Black Sea (near the mouth of the Danube). But Bretannion was so beloved by his flock that Valens was compelled by popular discontent to recall Bretannion (Benedictines).
