Western Saints of the Orthodox Church — 16th February


16th February

FAUSTINUS, consecrated Bishop of Brescia circa A.D. 360, succeeding St. Ursicinus (1st December). St Faustinus was the author of the acts of SS. Faustinus and Jovita (15th February), and a possible collateral descendant of theirs. St. Faustinus reposed in A.D. 381.

HONESTUS, after being converted to Christianity by St. Saturninus (29th November), St. Honestus joined him in evangelising Navarre. It appears he was martyred in Pamplona in A.D. 270.

ONESIMUS, (on Eastern Calendars 22nd November) a slave of SS. Philemon and Apphia (19th February and 22nd November) in Colossae. He fled from Colossae to Rome after he had committed a robbery. In Rome, he sought refuge with St. Paul the Apostle (29th June), who converted St. Onesimus, and sent him back to Colossae with the letter known to us as the Epistle to Philemon. St. Onesimus reposed circa A.D. 90.

Prior to the Schism the Patriarchate of Rome was Orthodox, and fully in communion with the Orthodox Church. As Saint John of Shanghai and San Francisco +1966 said “The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable Liturgy is far older than any of her heresies”.
