Profile

Ordained by Pope Saint Damasus I. First bishop of Narni, Italy in 368. Legend says that he saved Narni from invasion by Ligurians and Sarmatians praying for a great thunderstorm so great that the invaders fled in fear. Another story says that there was an attempt on his life by trying to strike him in the head with a sword; Juvenal caught the blade in his teeth and the would-be killer gave up.
