St. Placidus

 

About Saint Placidus

Saint Placidus is also known as Saint Placid.  He was a follower of St. Benedict and the son of Tertullus.  Tertullus brought Saint Placidus to St. Benedict when he was only a boy and promised him to God.

Saint Placidus Rescued

While Saint Placidus was at the monastery, he fell into a lake and was drowning.  Another monk, St. Maurus was ordered by St. Benedict to run across the water and save Saint Placidus.  Maurus did as he was told and ran across the top of the water, pulling Saint Placidus to safety.

Feast of Saint Placidus

The feast of Saint Placidus is celebrated on October 5, along with St. Maurus who saved his life.  He died during the sixth century but not much is known about the rest of his life.

Patron Saint Placidus
Saint Placidus is the patron saint of:

  • Messina, along with Madonna of the Letter
  • Biancavilla
  • Castel di Lucio
  • Montecarotto
  • Poggio Imperial

Saint Placidus  and Saint Placitus

Saint Placidus is often confused with Saint Placitus who was an early Christian martyr.  Placitus was martyred along with thirty other saints under the rule of Diocletian.  The feast of Saint Placitus is also celebrated on October 5 which is the reason for the mix up.

In 1969, this matter of Saint Placidus and St. Placitus was resolved in the Roman Calendar of Saints stating, “Saint Placidus, the disciple of Saint Benedict is now universally distinguished from Saint Placidus, the unknown martyr in Sicily.”

 Saint Placidus Remembered

In spite of the confusion over the history of Saint Placidus, he is remembered as a Benedictine saint by Catholics today.  Many Catholics wear a Saint Placidus medal or a Saint Placidus pendant to honor this early Christian saint and the miracle surrounding his rescue.  Wearing a Saint Placidus necklace reminds believers that Jesus is always with them, even when the circumstances seem hopeless.
