St. Liborius

(348-397)

Ordinary Time: July 23rd



St. Liborius was bishop of Le Mans (348-397), where he labored with signal success. He is said to have healed sufferers from "grave and allied complaints," and for this reason, his feast was introduced by Pope Clement XI, himself a victim, who was cured through the saint's intercession. The earliest historical reference dates to the ninth century when his remains were transferred to Paderborn, Westphalia, to aid in the conversion of the Saxons; they are still there at present.
The Church's Year of Grace, Pius Parsch
