THIS DAY IN CHURCH HISTORY

Historical Events in Church Annals for May 28:

  • 567 A.D.
  • Death of Saint Germanus of Paris, Priest and Abbot of St. Symphorian's in France, he was renowned for his great mysticism and prophecy. Named to be Bishop of Paris, his holiness changed the face of the city, even that of the King. He died at the age of 80 after a life of penance and sacrifice.

  • 640 A.D.
  • Pope Severinus becomes the 71st successor of Peter. Though he would live less than three months, passing away on August 2, 640, he nobly fought the Byzantine Emperor Heraclius on the issue of monoteletic heresy.
