St. Christian Demosthenes

 

Saint Christian Demosthenes

Saint Christian Demosthenes is a pseudo name for St. Gregory of Nazianzen who lived from 330A.D. to 390A.D.  He was referred to as Saint Christian Demosthenes because of his great orator skills and his role as a Doctor of the Church.  Saint Christian Demosthenes wrote many treatises, letters, poems, and theological orations.

Demosthenes

Saint Christian was compared to Demosthenes, the Greek statesman from Athens who lived in 384 B.C.  Demosthenes was an orator in ancient Greece who was a brilliant speech writer and lawyer.

Demosthenes was also influential in the uprising against Alexander the Great, although his attempts failed.  He eventually committed suicide rather than being captured by Alexender.

Saint Christian and the Trinity

Saint Christian Demosthenes defended the Trinity in the third of his discourses on Catholic Doctrine.  He was instrumental in the acceptance of Jesus as the Son of God and belief in the doctrine of the Trinity.  Catholics recite the Nicene Creed at every Mass which declares belief in the Trinity, three persons in one God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Wearing a Saint Christian Demosthenes medal is an ideal way to show respect and reverence to this great Doctor of the Church.  The Saint Christian Demosthenes pendant is an outward symbol of belief in the Trinity and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
