Feast Day of St. Barbatus of Benevento
Let us read about the life of St. Barbatus as we seek his intercession.
St. Barbatus of Benevento was the Bishop of Benevento, Italy. He was born in Italy about 612 and was ordained in Marcona. Sent to Benevento, Barbatus evangelized and converted many. When the city was put under siege by Byzantine Emperor Constans II in 663, Barbatus predicted that the assault would end. When peace came, Barbatus was named bishop of Benevento. He attended the Council of Constantinople in 680. He died in Benevento on February 29.
St. Barbatus, pray for us.
