Saint Denisplatforms, Teacher of the Catholic Church that helps us in pain
San Dionisio is one of the 14 holy helpers of the Catholic Church And like each one of these saints who protects in a specific pain of the body or some disease, the saint Dionysus protects us against headaches and depression.
This saint was a fervent supporter of lenient treatment with the expired, those who had renounced the faith under pressure, and now desired to be received back into the Church.
For seventeen years he served as bishop in Alexandria, enduring civil strife, plagues, and famines, and the church was repeatedly persecuted.
Saint Dionysius was called “The Great”, or Dionysius the Great. Saint Athanasius called him "Master of the Catholic Church", because of his great wisdom and because of his immense kindness towards all living beings.
History and teachings of Saint Dionysus
Saint Denis He was born and lived in Alexandria, Egypt. They say that when he learned the dictates of the Bible, he converted to Christianity and shone for his great intelligence and his prodigious memory.
Thus, he was director of a famous clergy school located in the city and in the year 247 he was elected bishop of Alexandria.
He had to face the terrible persecution of Decius, and it is said that the pursuers looked for him everywhere, except in his house, since they imagined that he had fled. But he had not moved from his habitation.
Four days later Dionisio was caught leaving his house with several of his disciples. But one escaped and met a huge group of people on their way to celebrate a wedding and told them what had happened.
So much was the respect and love of the habitabefore Alexandria by Dionysius who with sticks and stones attacked the police and took away the prisoners. They put him on a mule and sent him to the desert, so that there he would be free from the pursuers.
From the desert, Saint Dionysius wrote several letters recommending having great mercy with sinners and used with great skill a series of very special phrases from Sacred Scripture to combat heretics.
Saint Dionysius died in the year 265, but his writings and teachings brought him the fame and affection of all the devotees. He is remembered as a true father and teacher.
