Facts

Feastday: November 21

Death: 940


Liberalis, of Brive, France, left his native place to undertake a hidden life as a hermit in the Alps near Embrun. The clergy and people of Embrun came to recognize his great humility and other virtues, which led to his being chosen to become the city's bishop. Liberalis proved to be a most devoted pastor. His body is enshrined in a church of his native city of Brive, in the diocese of Tulle, which for centuries has commemorated him each year on November 21.
