St. Caprais, Abbot

HE was the spiritual master and guide of St. Honoratus, and died soon after him in the isle of Lerins, in 430. His sanctity is much extolled by St. Hilary of Arles, who assisted at his death, and others, and his name is commemorated in the Roman and Gallican Martyrologies on the 1st of June. See Berault’s Chronicle of Lerins, the life of St. Honoratus, Surius, and Giry.  1
