ST. BRICE, B. C.

HE was a native of Tours, and a monk under St. Martin, whose patience he exercised by his sloth and pride. That saint foretold his remarkable conversion, and that he should be his successor in the see of Tours, which accordingly happened in 339. Upon slanders spread to his disadvantage he was expelled the city by the people, and lived many years an exile at Rome. By holy patience he triumphed over malice; and being restored to his see, governed it with great sanctity to his happy death, in 444. His name was held in particular veneration in France and England, and maintains its place in the calendar of the English Protestants. See St. Gregory of Tours, Hist.1. 10, c. 31; Fortunatus, Bede, Ado, and Usuard, on the 13th of November.
