NAME OF THE DAY

merocle ITALIAN

This name derives probably from the Ancient Greek “múron ‎(μύρον)”, meaning “unguent, sweet oil, balsam, any sweet juice distilled from plants and used for unguents or perfumes” plus “klētós ‎(κλητός)”, meaning “called, invited, welcome, chosen, invoked”. Mirocles was bishop of Milan from before 313 to ~316. He is honored as a saint in the Catholic Church and his feast day is on December 3. Mirocles possibly founded also the church of San Vittore al Corpo in Milan (rebuilt many times during the next centuries) in honor of Saint Victor Maurus, who was martyred during the reign of Emperor Diocletian in 303. Mirocles died on November 30 of about 316, and his feast day was set on December 3. His body was buried in Milan in the church of San Vittore al Corpo.
