Happy Feast Day
Saint Irenaeus of Lyons
Feast Day: June 28
Patronage: Apologist and Catechist
Saint Irenaeus, one of the Fathers of the Church, and a bishop of Lyons, France combated the Gnostic heresy (that the material world was evil and had access to secret knowledge) by exposing and refuting their teaching with the true teaching of Christian orthodox teaching and apostolic authority. His work laid the foundation of Christian theology and was translated into Latin so it would be available to all. He most likely was martyred because of the persecutions of the time.
