August 5 – Saint Emygdius: Patron Saint against Earthquakes

Saint Emygdius, Patron Saint of Earthquakes (Memorial:  August 5)

Extract from Saint Emygdius: “His legend states that he was a pagan of Trier who became a Christian. He also converted many to Christianity. He was made a bishop by Pope Marcellus I (or Pope Marcellinus), and sent to Ascoli Piceno. On his way to Ascoli, Emydgius made more conversions, and performed a miracle where he made water gush out of a mountain after striking a cliff.”
