Pope Saint Anastasius I

December 19
Born: 4th Century in Rome, Italy.

All that is known of his early life is that he was considered pious as a youth, and cared nothing for material things as an adult. Pope. Fought against the heresy of Donatism.
St. Anastasius was a friend of the great Fathers of the Church, St. Augustine, St. Jerome, and St. Paulinus. St. Paulinus of Nola.
St. Anastasius died in December 401 with the empire on the brink of disaster.
St. Jerome says that he was a man of apostolic zeal and great poverty, and that Rome did not deserve to possess him long lest the world's head be cut off while ruled by such a bishop.

Pope St. Anastasius I, pray for us!
