St. Florence, Laywoman

St. Florence was the daughter of a Roman colonist who was residing in Asia Minor on the road that led from Frigia to Seleucia. St. Hilary of Poitiers met her during a stop on his journey toward Seleucia where the Synod of 359 was to be held. Florence requested Baptism from the holy Bishop and followed him on his return to Pointiers the next year.

The Saint then retired to Comblé, Vienne, France, where she led the life of a hermit. She communed with God day and night, practicing much penance and combating the assaults of the devil. Finally worn out by her labors, she died in 366 at twenty-nine years of age. Her relics were transferred to the Cathedral of Pointiers in the 11th century.

PRAYER: God, You inspired St. Florence to strive for perfect charity and so attain Your Kingdom at the end of her pilgrimage on earth. Strengthen us through her intercession that we may advance rejoicing in the way of love. Amen.
