Clement of Rome

November 23, 2016 all-day

Clement was a disciple of the apostles and the third bishop of Rome. He was known for his pastoral letters.
He wrote: “The strong must make sure that they care for the weak. The rich must be certain to give enough to supply all the needs of the poor. The poor must thank God for supplying their needs. We all need each other: the great need the small, the small need the great.”
He prayed: “O God, make us children of quietness, and heirs of peace.”
