Feast Day : September 23



Very little is known about Linus. By tradition, he was the son of Herculanus, from Tuscany. Apparently he is the Linus mentioned by St. Paul in II Timothy 4:21. SS. Peter and Paul are said to have turned the governance of the Church of Rome over to him, and he is considered to have followed Peter in the office of bishop of Rome, making him the second in the roster of popes. His reign lasted 12 years, from A.D. 64–67 to 76–79. He was probably buried at the foot of Vatican Hill, possibly beside Peter.
