September 7

FEAST OF ST. ENURCHUS OR EVURTIUS, BISHOP. Died about the year 340.

ST. ENURCHUS, a Subdeacon in Roman Orders, went into Gaul as a missionary and was consecrated Bishop of Orleans, or (as I read elsewhere) of Arles: perhaps he was translated from one See to the other. He labored among his pagan flock for more than twenty years, converting "nearly the whole city" to the Christian Faith: and having borne the burden and heat of his day, entered into his rest.

"Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them."

  1. They laboured for the Lord and for His own
    As He Himself delighted to record
    Till in His love and wisdom they have known
    The blessedness of dying "in the Lord".

    I do trust that he brought a true gospel!
