St. Quodvultdeus was born in the late fourth century. He became a deacon circa 421 and was a friend and spiritual student of St. Augustine of Hippo. Carthage, where St. Quodvultdeus was serving as bishop, was invaded by Arians. After the invasion, the saint and his priests wee sent into exile by ship. The vessel ended up in Naples, Italy, where the saint continued his ministry. A Catholic bishop was not permitted in Carthage for another 15 years. St. Quodvultdeus died circa 450 in Naples.
