EUSEBIUS (Saint) Pope (September 26) (4th century) The successor of Saint Marcellus in the Chair of Saint Peter (A.D. 310). He strenuously upheld the discipline of the Church and opposed any undue laxity in applying the so-called Penitential Canons, enforced on Christians who had failed in courage during the persecutions. He himself was at once called upon to suffer for Christ, being banished to Sicily, where he died after a short Pontificate of less than five months. Fragments of his epitaph written by Pope Saint Damasus have been found in the Roman Catacombs whither his remains were brought for interment.
