Pope Sixtus I

Pope Sixtus I - 7th Roman Catholic Pontiff from 115 to 125

7th Pontiff (115-125)

Pope Sixtus I was a Roman whose father's name was Pastor.

Several religious practice rules of the Catholic Church are attributed to Pope Sixtus I:

In order to preserve the sacredness of ceremonial vessels, Pope Sixtus I reserved the right only to priests to touch the wine cup (chalice) and plate (paten) used to hold the Host during the celebration of the Eucharist.

To keep local Catholic churches in communication with Rome, Pope Sixtus I decreed that bishops received in Rome by the pope must present a letter of greeting from the pope to the faithful upon their return home.

Although the prayer had been said outside of Mass, Pope Sixtus I is credited with the introduction of the triple Sanctus (Holy, Holy, Holy) during Mass.

The doctrine of the Trinity and the primacy of Rome are also ascribed to Pope Sixtus I.

Pope Sixtus I died a martyr, and his Feast Day is April 6.  Pope Sixtus I is buried next to Saint Peter.
