Saint Irenaeus coloring page: June 28th
Irenaeus was raised in a Christian family. He became both a priest and bishop during his lifetime. Irenaeus is most famous for his work against the spread of Gnosticism, a great heresy that threatened the Church at the time. He wrote several books that were immediately popular and successful in refuting the heresy. One of the most famous was Against Heresies, which we still have today. The Church honors Irenaeus as a martyr for the Faith on the date of his death, June 28th.
