St Paulinus the Merciful
(January 23)

He was first a Roman senator and then Bishop of Nola. Following the example of his friend, St Ambrose, he received baptism, after which he withdrew to the Spanish Pyrenees, where he lived a life of asceticism. But, as no light can be hidden, so St Paulinus was found and chosen as Bishop of Nola. He was a good and merciful shepherd, and entered peacefully into rest in the year 431. His relics are preserved in the Church of St Bartholomew in Rome.
