May 16 – Saint Honorius of Amiens: Patron Saint of Oil Refiners

Saint Honorius of Amiens, Patron Saint of Oil Refiners (Feast Date: May 16) 

Extract from Honoratus of Amiens:  “According to a legend, when it was known in his hometown that he had been proclaimed bishop, his nursemaid, who was baking bread for the family, refused to believe that Honoratus had been elevated to such a position. She remarked that she would believe the news only if the peel she had been using to bake bread put down roots and turned itself into a tree. When the peel was placed into the ground, it was transformed into a blackberry tree that gave flowers and fruit. This miraculous tree was still being shown in the sixteenth century.  See picture of Saint Honorius of Amiens.


We, at the CTF/SOS DRS have prayed for the intercession of St. Honorius of Amiens on behalf of those affected by the following catastrophes:

Oil Rig Explosion in Louisiana, USA.  (April 20, 2010)  (America)  See World Mission Rosary Intentions:  April 26 – May 09, 2010.


That the Lord in His Divine Mercy – through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary – may build up His Kingdom,make these mysteries a reality in our lives, strengthen us in our common mission, and come to the aid of those for whom we pray.
