Pope Justus, sixth Pope of Alexandria & Patriarch of the See of St. Mark.

This saint was an honorable and learned man before his ordination. He was baptized by St. Mark the Evangelist, along with his father, his mother and others.[1] St. Mark also appointed him as the first Dean of the Catechetical School of Alexandria.[2]St. Anianus, the second patriarch, ordained him a deacon, then a priest, and appointed him to preach, and teach the people. He was chosen for the papacy to succeed Pope Primus. He shepherded his people with the best of care for ten years. He departed on the 12th of Paoni 129 AD, in the sixteenth year of the reign of Hadrian, and was buried with his fathers.
