St. Saturnin of Toulouse was one of the “Apostles to the Gauls” sent out (probably under the direction of Pope Fabian, 236–250) during the consulate of Decius and Gratus (250–251) to Christianise Gaul after the persecutions under Emperor Decius had all but dissolved the small Christian communities. He was martyred by pagan priests who blamed St. Saturnin for their difficulties praying to their gods. One day they seized him and on his unshakeable refusal to sacrifice to the images they condemned him to be tied by the feet to a bull which dragged him about the town until the rope broke. His feast day is 29 November.
