ST. TELESPHORUS, P. M.

HE was a Grecian by birth, and the seventh bishop of Rome. Towards the end of the year 128, he succeeded Saint Sixtus I., sat eleven years, and saw the havoc which the persecution of Adrian made in the church. “He ended his life by an illustrious martyrdom,” says Eusebius; which is also confirmed by St. Irenæus.2
