Description

St Ovidius (Patron for Auditory condtions and Diseases)

St Ovidius (Portuguese: Santo Ovídio), also Saint Auditus, is a Portuguese saint. According to hagiographies of the 16th century, Ovidius was a Roman citizen of Sicilian origin. Tradition states that he sent to Braga by Pope Clement I, where he served as the city’s third bishop around 95. He  said to have baptized Saint Marina and her sisters after they abandoned by their mother.

He martyred for his Christian faith in 135.

Veneration
The Portuguese call him Santo Ovídio, and sometimes, by the folkloric São Ouvido (literally “Saint that is heard” or “Saint Ear”), a folk-etymological translation of the Latin name Auditus; this name then rendered as Ovídio.

Accounts of the 17th century assert that in Lusitanian archaeological sites, Saint Ovidius depicted in episcopal robes or in the garments of a hermit; these depictions testify to an ancient veneration. His sepulcher can found in the cathedral of Braga.

Because of his name, Saint Auditus or Ovidius traditionally invoked against auditory diseases. Under the base of his sepulcher in the cathedral, there were two holes into which the deaf would slip their fingers. They would then place their fingers into their ears by way of intercession with this saint.

His feast day is June 3.
