Coptic Synaxarium (Coptic Orthodox Calendar)

12 Paonah
(The Twelfth Day of the Blessed Month of Baounah)

 

The Departure of St. Justus, the Sixth Pope of the See of St. Mark

On this day also, of the year 135 A.D., St. Justus, the Sixth Pope of the See of St. Mark, departed. This saint was an honorable and learned man before his ordination. He was baptized by St. Mark the Apostle, along with his father, his mother and others. St. Anianus, the second pope, ordained him a deacon, then a priest, and appointed him to preach, and teach the people. He was chosen for the papacy to succeed Pope Primus. He shepherded his people with the best of care for ten years. He departed at a pleasing good old age.

May his prayers be with us. Amen.
