Memorial

Profile

When his parents died, Caraunus sold all his goods and estate, distributed the money to the poor, and retired from the world to live as a prayerful hermit. His reputation for holiness spread, his local bishop ordained Caraunus as a deacon, and the new deacon gave up the life of a hermit to serve as a missionary to areas of Gaul where the faith had all but disappeared.
