Image of St. Honoratus of Amiens Honoratus, of Port-le-Grand, France, served as bishop of Amiens in the late sixth century. He is described as "inflamed" with charity, totally devoting himself to the exercise of pious works and the celebration of divine worship, while disciplining himself with fasting and vigils. On one occasion during Mass, as Honoratus was holding the Host at the consecration, he experienced a vision of the hand of Christ holding the Host at that very same moment. In the centuries following the holy bishop's death, a number of miraculous cures were attributed to his intercession. A particularly striking prodigy, witnessed by many of the clergy and laity in Amiens, occurred in a church to which the body of Honoratus had been brought temporarily for the veneration of the faithful there. On the day that the relic was to be returned to the cathedral, those present saw the corpus of a crucifix in the church fully bow toward the saint's body as it was being carried out. Honoratus is considered a patron saint of bakers and confectioners.
