Saint Ezechiel (Sixth Century B.C.)

Ezechiel was one of the four major prophets of the Old Testament. He was put to death by a Jewish judge and buried in the tomb of Sem, one of Noah’s sons. Early Christians made many pilgrimages to the grave of this great prophet, Ezechiel, whom Catholics now call Saint Ezechiel on his feast day.
