Oil Dedicated to St Maximin 2 (Patron Invoked as Protection against Perjury)
St Maximin 2 (Patron Invoked as Protection against Perjury) from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.
Saint Maximin of Trier, also known as Saint Maximinus, is one of the earliest and most honored bishops of Trier, in what is now Germany. He was reportedly a companion of Saint Agritius, who he succeeded as bishop of Trier in the 4th century. St. Maximin was involved in the theological debates of his time and played a significant role in the conversion of the Franks to Christianity.
While Saint Maximin’s life and work are noteworthy, it’s important to note that patron saints of specific causes often designated due to events or themes in their lives or martyrdom that relate to that cause. However, as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, there’s no widely recognized association between St. Maximin and invoked for protection against perjury specifically.
Patronages can sometimes regional or specific to a certain group, so it’s possible that in certain communities, St. Maximin invoked for this purpose. However, in the broader Catholic tradition, patron saints more commonly associated with honesty, truth, and justice might invoked in situations involving perjury. For example, St. Thomas More, who martyred for his refusal to act against his conscience, often invoked for matters of conscience and justice.
If there have been developments regarding St. Maximin’s patronage after September 2021, I would not have that information. It’s always a good idea to consult with a local religious leader or do additional research for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
