June 22 - Saint Paulinus of Nola


Married to Therasia, who, in reality, had the religious vocation, both sold their possessions, built a church and gave everything they had to the poor in order to dedicate themselves to prayer. Ordained Priest, Paulinus was bishop of Nola. He offered himself in rescue of the son of a poor woman who was held captive in the vandals of Africa. But in the end, the king of the vandals let them both go free along with all the captives of his bishopric.
