EQUITIUS (Saint) Abbot (6th century) The Superior of a House in the Province of Valeria (a district to the East of Rome). Though not a priest, he preached with assiduity and success, bringing many sinners back to God, from whom he had received the gift of the working of miracles. His life of prayer and penance ended March 7, A.D. 540; but his Festival is kept on August 11, anniversary of the Translation of his relics to Aquila. Saint Gregory the Great devotes a considerable portion of the First Book of his Dialogues to the giving an account of the virtues and wonderful works of Saint Equitius.
