St. Maurilius

September 13, 2016

In the fifth century, leaving a large estate and a tender mother at Milan in order to serve God in holy retirement, St. Maurilius addressed himself to St. Martin of Tours by whom he was directed in the narrow path of Christian perfection. He founded a monastery on a hill called Prisciac, near the village Calon on the Loire, four miles from Angers.  Here he often retired even after he was made bishop. After his death his body rested here and was held in great veneration till it was translated from this church which bore his name into that of St. Martin about the year 970. It is there exposed in a rich shrine and has been honored with many miracles.
