Saturday Saints- #85

Today’s post features the letter “E.” This leads to our saint of the day, Pope Eugene I:

Pope Eugene I (died 2 June 657), also known as Eugenius I, was Pope from 10 August 654 to his death in 657. He was a native of Rome, born to one Rufinianus.

Little is known of Pope Eugene’s early life other than that he was a Roman from the Aventine and was known for his holiness, gentleness, and charity. He had been a cleric from his youth and held various positions within the Church of Rome.

More can be found out about him at his wiki, located here.
