Facts

Feastday: August 12
Death: 732

Martyr and Benedictine abbot of Lerins, off the coast of Provence, France. According to tradition, Porcarius had a vision that the monastery was about to be attacked by Saracen raiders. The youngest monks were sent away to safety while he, with the remaining brethren, were massacred a short time later. The only survivors were four monks carried off into slavery in Spain or perhaps North Africa.
