Holy Gatien is the guard and the consolator of all afflicted which call upon him with confidence, because he’s never requested in vain.
One called upon him in particular to find the lost or concealed domestic things.
Holy Gatien was the first bishop of Turns and, when he arrived in Touraine, he found a country entirely pagan. In this country, he had extremely to make. His virtues, supported by his fasts and his macerations, gained many hearts to him; but the pagan priests who sought him loss forced him to hide to celebrate sacred mysterieies.
His immense love of the poor made him build a hospital for them; it’s in this hospital, where he one day rested his tirednesses, which God appeared to him, announced to him, his nearest end and his place reserved in the Sky. He returned his heart to God a few days later, on December 18th of year 116, after having worked 50 years in Touraine with the glory of his God.
God of any kindness and love, which gave us as a Holy Gatien so powerful and so generous guard, grant to us to have in him most whole confidence and the most sincere love; that it’s our help and our consolation in our sorrows and the embarrassments of this life; that he assists us in all circumstances, so that one day, with him, we can bless you and love you eternally. Amen.
Particularly Holy Gatien, whom one effectively calls upon in all circumstances, and to find the lost or concealed domestic things, request for us.
Lord Jesus-Christ, Wire of alive God! Place your passion, your cross and your death between your justice and my heart, now and the hour of my death. Make me grace and mercy: give at alive forgiveness, and rest with the late ones; peace with your Church, and all the sinners life and eternal glory. Amen.
