Bishop and Confessor.

From an illustrious Venetian family, for the love of Christ crucified he renounced an advantageous marriage and all the delights of the world, to consecrate himself to God in religious life, where he treated his body extremely harshly.

Elevated to the Venetian See, his admirable charity for the poor and his zeal for ecclesiastical discipline shone; For which he was given the title of first Patriarch of Venice.

V: Saint Lawrence Justinian.
A: Pray for us.
