Saint Hesychius of Jerusalem (d.450)

for March 28

Saint Hesychius of Jerusalem was a priest and monk who penned the history of the Church, which has unfortunately been lost to time. Apart from writing the Church's history, Hesychius also documented many major issues of his time, including the heresies of Nestorianism and Arianism. He had a special devotion to the Eucharist and told his followers, "Keep yourselves free from sin so that every day you may share in the mystic meal; by doing so our bodies become the body of Christ."
