Fuller Brush with Death

Today’s the feast of St. Anastasius the Fuller, who was martyred in 304 A.D. Just the facts from Catholic Forum: “Born a wealthy Aquileian noble. After reading Saint Paul’s advice to the Thessalonians that it’s best to work with your hands, he became a fuller at Split, Croatia. Martyred in the persecutions of Diocletian when he painted a cross on his shop door and openly practised his faith.” May he intercede for us who honor his memory today.

  2. Thank you, T. Both my sources and my brain run more slowly than history permits these days. I’ve fixed it in the text.

  3. That’s a much fuller explanation. Thanks, Maureen.
