Bishop, Confessor and Doctor

He was a native of Cartagena, brother of three Saints: Fulgencio, Isidoro and Florentina. He converted Prince Saint Hermenegildo to Catholicism, who sealed his faith with his blood. Leandro was the representative of Catholic Spain in the fight against the Arian Leovigildo, which culminated in the solemn triumph of Recaredo’s conversion, and the proclamation of Catholic unity at the Third Council of Toledo. Leandro directed the education of his brother St. Isidoro, the greatest luminary of Visigothic Spain.
