St. Oliver of Ancona (+1050)
Commemorated February 3
St. Oliver (also known as Oliverius of Portonuovo) was a Benedictine monk from a community south of Ancona on the Italian Adriatic Coast. It is thought that he came from Armenia, or that he originally was a Camaldolese monk from Dalmatia.
From his scroll: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”
I was so pleased to find the icon of St. Oliver on your website. He is not an easy to find saint. I was also impressed with the good quality of the mounted print and how quickly it arrived.
