St. Volusian of Tours
St. Volusian was born into a very wealthy family and was actually related to St. Perpetuus his predecessor as Bishops at Tours, presumably with Ruricius of Limoges. Only a little has been said about the time of his election as Bishop of Tours. Named bishop of the city in 488, he was forced to leave the see in 496 by the Arian Visigoths, and went to Spain. He died perhaps in Toulouse, or in Spain, possibly as a martyr. Very little is known about St. Volusian and I wasn't able to find a picture but here's one of the Cathedral in Tours
Lord may we venerate and apply the life of St. Volusian your humble servant of Tours, into our daily lives.
That we may be humble of heart and Strong in our proclamation of the Gospel of Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
