Saint of the Day – 22 November – Saint Pragmatius of Autun (Died c 520) Bishop

Saint of the Day – 22 November – Saint Pragmatius of Autun (Died c 520) Bishop of Autun, France, Peacemaker. Also known as Prammazio, Pragmazio.

We have very little information regarding the life of our Saint but we do know that he was a friend of the great holy Bishops of his time, Saints Sidoine Apollinaire and Saint Avitus of Vienne. We also we find his signature at the bottom of the Acts of one of the Councils of his time.

As Bishop, Pragmatius worked tirelessly, to spare his Diocese from the violence caused by the bitter feuding among the claimants to the Frankish throne during the early 6th Century.

In his old age, he had the pain of seeing his Episcopal See, devastated by the sons of Clovis, winners of the Burgundians, who opposed the invading Franks.

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
