October 21st is the Feast of St. Viator, the patron of our parish. Viator lived in the fourth centu- ry (360 A.D.) in Lyon, France and was closely associated with St. Just who was then the bishop of that diocese. Viator was an aide to Bishop Just and was both a Lector at the liturgies and a catechist to children and others desiring to learn about the faith. Together with St. Just, Viator left Lyon after a tragic incident in that city and fled to the deserts of Egypt where they joined a community of monks who lived in the Libyan Desert. Both died there after a number of years of ascetical life. Their remains were brought back to Lyon where they were both hailed as saints by public acclamation. Reverence for the two remained strong in Lyon and their relics were hon- ored in the church where they were buried.
