Image of St. Vigilius of Trent

Bishop of Trent (German for Trento), Italy, and martyr. A member of the patricians (the Roman noble class), he was born at Trent. He studied at Athens, Greece, and then returned to his native city, where he was appointed bishop. Vigilius long labored to aid the poor, resist the pernicious practice of usury, and most of all to promote conversions among the populace away from paganism. When he commanded that a statue of Saturn be hurled into a river, a group of irate pagans stoned Vigilius to death. He is venerated as the patron of Trent and the Tyrol region of Austria.
