Saint of the Day –30 December – St Rainerius of Aquila (Died c 1077) Bishop

Saint of the Day –30 December – St Rainerius of Aquila (Died c 1077) Bishop of Forconium (modern Aquila), Abruzzi region, Italy. Also known as – Raynerius, Rainier, Raineri, Rainieri, Ranieri, Raniero, or Regnier.

Unfortunately no details of Rainerius have survived but he was noted for his excellent administrative skills and was Canonised by Pope Honorius III.

He is not to be confused with the pilgrim Saint of the same name, who is Patron Saint of Pisa, in Italy (Feast day 17 June).

The Roman Martyrology reads: “At Aquila, Abruzzi, St Rainerius, Bishop.”

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! 🙏
