TODAY'S SAINT: ST. ANTONINUS

St. Antoninus

MARTYR AND HERMIT
Feast: September 2
Information: Feast Day: September 2
Antoninus is listed as a stonemason in Aribazus, Syria (or Pamiers, France). He denounced the pagan practices of his fellow townspeople and went to live as a hermit for two years. Antoninus then returned to his village and destroyed the pagan idols. He fled the town and built a church in Apamea, Syria, where he was murdered. Both Apamea and Pamiers claim this saint.
