Saint Deogratias

Deogratias was a young priest who was chosen to be bishop of Carthage. Bishop Deogratias worked hard for the people under his care, teaching them much about faith. Bishop Deogratias would buy as many slaves as he could to keep the families together. He immediately freed them and found homes for them to live in. When there were no more homes, he took two of his largest churches and turned them into dorms and a hospital. Runtime : 2:19 mins
