Bishop John of Spoleto showed up, embraced the saint, and welcomed him to Italy. Convinced of the Syrian's holy mission, people flocked to the area to build a little church (monasterium). John the Syrian preached in the spot for forty-four years. He's credited with founding the abbeys of Pinna and Pesaro. After his death, pilgrims flocked to the spot to find relief from leprosy, blindness, demonic possession, and any other ailment that the local barber couldn't bleed out of folks.

They were patriotic, and while it may count as profiling, it is not unreasonable to make a connection between foreigners and spies. The flowering tree might have tipped them off a little sooner, but they did the right thing in the end.
