Saint’s Biography

Saint Venerius of Milan was born in the 3rd century in northern Italy. He became the deacon of Milan ordained by Saint Ambrose of Milan. When Ambrose died in 397 Venerius became his successor as the bishop of Milan.

He was a friend of the Saint Paulinus of Nola, Saint Delphinus of Bordeaux, and Saint Chromatius of Aquileia. Venerius supported and defended the charter in Carthage in 401, and he sent priests to Africa for help. Venerius is also known for his loyal support to Saint John the Chrysostom (c. 347-407) when he was deposed as the patriarch of Constantinople in 404 and banished.


Venerius in 409 of natural causes and in 1579, Saint Charles Borromeo of Milan brought his relics to the Cathedral of Milan.
