Orator, Poet and Bishop.He started as a Roman prefect but traveled a lot meeting celebrities like St AMBROSE and St JEROME.
He married a Spanish wife named Therasia, and they had a son who died in infancy causing great distress.
Having seen miracles at the tomb of St FELIX-OF-NOLA, they sold up and settled as hermits in Nola. There they kept open house for poor folk. Probably impoverished poets as he was always trying to find words to rhyme with 'Felix'.
Then, to his surprise, in 409 he was elected Bishop.
