Saint Leo of Dalmatia, Hermit

July 1 is the commemoration of Saint Leo of Dalmatia, Hermit
San Leo
”An imposing town on a massif, San Leo (Rimini Province)[Italy] reigns mid-way over the Valle del Marecchia, a critical spot in terms of the territory’s historic and military events. Before it became Christian, it was a place of pagan worship, but later hosted the hermit Saint Leo of Dalmatia.
Together with his friend St. Marinus, St. Leo contributed to the advent of Christianity in Montefeltro in the 4th Century.”
