Book of Saints – Heron


(Saint) Bishop, Martyr (October 17) (2nd century) A disciple of Saint Ignatius of Antioch and his successor in the great Syrian See. During his twenty years of Episcopate (A.D. 116-A.D. 136) he faithfully imitated the zeal and charity which had distinguished his master, Saint Ignatius; and in the end, like him, won the Crown of Martyrdom. Epistles to and from Saint Ignatius, bearing the name of Saint Heron, are extant, but are of doubtful authenticity.
