St. Cornelius

Cornelius the Centurion 
Feastday: February 2
 1st century.
 Cornelius was the centurion of the Italica cohort stationed at Caesarea, 
Palestine, who was baptized by Saint Peter. He had a vision telling him to send for Peter, 
who came to his home and baptized him and his whole family (Acts 10), which points to the 
legitimacy of infant baptism. According to tradition and the Roman Martyrology, he became 
the first bishop of Caesarea
