St. Peter Chrysologus

St. Peter Chrysologus was born in Imola, Italy, in 406. He converted to Christianity as an adult and became a deacon, then priest and finally bishop of Ravenna, Italy, in 433. He fought against paganism and the Monophysite heresy, which said that Jesus only had one nature. This saint was a great preacher, which is why he was given the name Chrysologus, which refers to his “golden word.” His written sermons were so great that Pope Benedict XIII named him a doctor of the church in 1729.
