Feast day of St. Clement, Bishop of Rome
The Church today venerates the Memory of Clement.
St. Clement was instructed in the Faith of Christ by the Apostle Peter.
He became Bishop of Rome in the year 91 — the third after the death of the Apostles.
St. Clement died a martyr in roughly the year 100, during the reign of Trajan.
A portion of the saint’s holy relics are venerated today at the Petraki Monastery, in north Athens.
