The Blessed Lawrence the Illuminator †576

5th Century Church near Spoleto

The Blessed Lawrence is a pre-schism Saint from Syria (a native Antiochian!) who fled to Italy when the upholders of  Chalcedonian Definition were being persecuted under Bishop Severus in 514 A.D.  Ordained in Italy, he was Bishop of Spoleto, and founded a monastery there; he is counted as an intercessor for persons who are blind, as he was known as one who was gifted by God as a healer of blindness, both physical and spiritual.

He has been canonized in the Roman Catholic Church.
