Saint CyriL of JeruSaLem

Saint Cyril, born around 315 A.D. in Jerusalem, was ordained priest then bishop in 349. Not long after, he was in several controversies, which he inherited from his predecessor. One accusation was that the bishop sold church properties to the emperor to give alms to the poor. Thus, Cyril was condemned and thrown into exile. Sixteen years after, he returned, only to be caught in between proponents and opponents of Arianism. Cyril died in 386 at the age of 70.
In 1882, Cyril was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church because of his surviving work, The Catechetical Lectures.
