St. Placid

St. Placid lived in the sixth century. It is said that he was placed into the care of St. Benedict after the saint saved him from drowning. St. Placid accompanied St. Benedict at Monte Cassino and Subiaco. One legend credits St. Placid with founding St. John the Baptist Monastery in Messina, Sicily. St. Placid’s disciples include Eutychius, Faustus, Donatus and Firmatus.
