Pope St. Sylvester
Dec 31, 2021
Patron Saint of Benedictines
With Emperor Constantine’s Edict of Milan in 313, Christianity was finally granted freedom. Legend has it, that having contracted leprosy, Emperor Constantine was healed after receiving baptism at the hand of St. Sylvester, and that afterwards, he made many gifts to the Church.
In any case, with the Edict of Milan, things certainly became easier for the Church.
