St. Gatianus (in French, Gatien) in the third century AD was the founding bishop of the see of Tours. He was one of the “seven apostles of Gaul” commissioned by Pope Fabian to evangelize in the region. Gatianus established a hospice for the poor outside the walls of Tours. There he lay, overcome with weariness, after five decades of fasting, penances and toil. And there, the abbe Jaud relates, the Saviour appeared to him, saying, “Fear not! Thy crown is readied and the Saints await thy arrival in Heaven.”
