The Feast of Saint Theodosius the Great, Roman Emperor
It was Saint Constantine who converted the Roman Empire to Christianity, but it was Saint Theodosius the Great who established her Christian character and removed the last vestiges of paganism. St. Theodosius championed Trinitarianism, presiding over the Council of Constantinople and fiercely opposing the heresy of Arianism. He was the last Roman emperor to rule both the east and the west.
Saint Thedosius, pray for us and for all Christian rulers.
