Paulinus was a successful politician in Gaul at the end of the Roman Empire. When he became a Christian, he gave all his time and wealth to the Church. Everyone loved him for his kindness and courtesy. His fellow Christians asked him to become a priest. He served them faithfully as a priest and was made a bishop.
