Saturday Saints- #103

The letter “V” is featured in today’s post. Thus, our saint is Saint Venatius Fortunatus:

Venantius Honorius Clementianus Fortunatus (c. 530–c. 600/609) was a Latin poet and hymnodist in the Merovingian Court, and a Bishop of the early Catholic Church. He was never canonised—no saint was canonised till Saint Ulrich of Augsburg in 993—but he was venerated as Saint Venantius Fortunatus during the Middle Ages.

His is not the life of your average saint, assuming there is such a thing. So I would encourage my readers to learn more about him at his wiki, located here.
