St. Honoratus

Name: St. Honoratus
Date: 16 January

Archbishop of Arles

Saint Honoratus was of a consular Roman family that had settled in Gaul. In his youth herenounced the worship of idols and gained his elder brother, Venantius, to Christ. The twobrothers, convinced of the hollowness of the things of this world, desired to renounce it with allits pleasures, but a fond pagan father put continual obstacles in their way. At length, taking withthem for their director Saint Caprais, a holy hermit, they sailed from Marseilles to Greece,intending to live there unknown in a desert. Venantius soon died happily at Methone, andHonoratus, who was ill, was obliged to return to Gaul with his guide.

He first led the life of a hermit in the mountains near Frejus. Two small islands lie in the sea nearthat coast; on the smaller, now known as Saint HonorÉ, the Saint settled, and when others cameto him there, he founded the famous monastery of Lerins, about the year 400. Some of hisfollowers he appointed to live in community; others, who seemed more perfect, in separated cellsas anchorites. His rule was borrowed in large part from that of Saint Pachomius.

Nothing can be more amiable than the description Saint Hilary has given of the excellent virtues ofthis company of saints, especially of the charity, concord, humility, compunction, and devotionwhich reigned among them under the conduct of their holy Abbot. Saint Honoratus was, bycompulsion, consecrated Archbishop of Arles in 426, and died, exhausted with austerities andapostolical labors, in 429.
