St. Abuna (Frumentius)
Author and Publisher - Catholic Online
In the Western liturgical church, my feast day is 27 Oct. Aedeius is my brother. I was a student of Meropius.
On a Red Sea ship cruise, a vessel wrecked on the Abbyssinian shoreline. My brother and I survived. Soldiers took us to the King of Axum. We were unable to return home, so we joined the court with myself gaining a position like a secretary, or minister.
The King died. We became members of the succeeding Queen's court. She allowed us to preach Christ, the knowledge of whom had been previously brought by the Eunuch, and Apostles Phillip, Mathew, and Nathaniel.
Through God's grace, Ethiopian princes Ezana and Sheazana converted. I died peacefully around 380 A.D.
