Eucherius (ST.). Bishop of Lyons was descended from an illustrious Lyonese family, and on account of his education and learning, was raised to senatorial rank. He was married and lived happily with his noble and pious wife Galla, and their two sons and daughters. Forsaking, however, his high position, he traveled to the Thebaid, and, on his return, became, with his wife s consent, a monk at Lerins, where his two sons, Salonius and Veranius, had received their education. Simultaneously Galla and her daughters assumed the religious veil. After a short time, seeking still greater facility for a contemplative life, Eucherius went to the neighboring and more lonesome isle of Lero (Ste. Marguerite). But the fame of his virtue became so widely extended that, about 434, much against his will, he was chosen Bishop of Lyons. During his episcopate he built many churches, founded various institutions and greatly encouraged the monastic life. In 441, he attended as metropolitan the Synod of Orange, and continued to labor assiduously for the good of the Church until his death, about 449. He was a man well versed in sacred learning, mighty in eloquence, and rich in good works. F. Nov. 16th.
