Nov. 10, 2017 (Memorial of St. Leo the Great)

St. Leo the Great was one of the most influential Popes and started the Papacy down the road of what it would become in the Middle Ages and Modern Times. He fought heresies, settled a major dispute in the Eastern Church (“Peter has spoken through Leo”, defended the city of Rome from being vandalized, and left us many sermons on the faith. For the latter he was declared a “Doctor of the Church.”
