St. Felix of Nola

St. Felix of Nola was born in Italy in the third century. He sold his property and belongings to give money to the poor. After being ordained by St. Maximus of Nola, he was arrested and beaten because of his faith. One legend says that Felix was released by an angel so that he could help Maximus, who was sick. Felix, who died circa 255, is patron saint against eye trouble and lies.
