Saturday Saints- #86

Long neglected, the letter F returns to the forefront in today’s post. Our saint for today is Saint, and Pope, Felix III:

Pope Felix III (died 1 March 492) was Pope from 13 March 483 to his death in 492. His repudiation of the Henoticon is considered the beginning of the Acacian schism

An interesting fact about him was that he was a Pope during a time when married priests could still become bishops, and one of his descendants later became pope himself. I also liked this saying attributed to him:

“Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it, and, indeed, to neglect to confound evil men—when we can do it—is no less a sin than to encourage them.”

The source of this is his wiki, located here.
