Spanning one of the most interesting centuries in Christian history, the life of St. Cyril bears witness to the Church’s struggle and growth in the years just after her legal recognition by the Roman Empire. Accordingly, as a priest and later Bishop of Jerusalem, Cyril was both an instigator and a victim of the political and theological intrigue that defined the period between the Councils of Nicaea (325) and Constantinople (381). Despite his sufferings, Cyril carried on a fruitful catechetical apostolate, for which he is recognized as a Doctor of the Church. Through the collection of Cyril’s lectures that has come down to us we enjoy a glimpse into the liturgical life of the ancient Church.
through Cyril of Jerusalem
you led your Church to a deeper understanding
of the mysteries of salvation.
Let his prayers help us to know your Son better
and to have eternal life in all its fullness.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
