Weekend Kneeler Jeopardy

Posting this a bit early since we are heading to the cabin. Hopefully, this will be a middle of the road question. Cathy commented that the questions are too hard, but last week's was pretty easy. Don't think that I know this stuff myself. It's usually things I have recently stumbled on...history is a weak subject for me! I just happened to have learned this one from having recently listened to EPIC. This shouldn't be too hard for Church history buffs, but for your average post Vatican II Catholic like myself, it took some learnin'.

Category: The Early Church

This man could go by all the following titles: priest/bishop, writer, anti-pope, martyr, saint.

St. Alex says, please place your answer in the form of a question in the combox, and say a Hail Mary while you wait for the answer to be revealed. Demerits for using Google. Educated guesses are welcome and encouraged.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Who is St. Hyppoclitus (I can't spell his name, but I know this one)

I'll give you full credit for that...it's Hippolytus. Way to go!

Hope you were saying Hail Marys all this time.

In listening to EPIC, Hippolytus was sent to the mines in Sardinia, where he happened to meet up with the real Pope at the time, Pontius. Sometime during their captivity, Hippolytus reconciled with the Church and died a martyr.

I haven't even left for the cabin yet...will have to think of another one to get through the weekend :)

Too hard for everyone but Joe! :-)

There's a knowledgeable Catholic behind every bush.
