St. Epipodius

St. Epipodius was born in Lyons, France, in the second century. He devoted his time to working for God as a confirmed celibate bachelor, although he never joined an order. One of his servants betrayed him to the authorities, and he was beheaded because of his faith in 178. Miracles were reported at his tomb. St. Epipodius is patron saint of bachelors and victims of betrayal.
