Bishop

From the most noble family of Roman patricians, he was born in Bordeaux and married a Spanish woman named Terasia; and following the path of worldly honors, he became Consul of the Roman Empire. Touched by grace, he received baptism, distributed his opulent fortune among the poor, and separated from his wife and both consecrated themselves to the Lord. Later he was ordained a priest and was Bishop of Nola.

Upon the invasion of the barbarians he sold himself as a slave to free the son of a widow.

V/. St. Paulinus of Nola.
R/. Pray for us.
