The Catholic Santoral celebrates today, Thursday, October 14, the figure of San Calixto I, the sixteenth pope of the Catholic Church. Born as a slave in a pagan family of Greek origin with residence in Rome, Calixto embraced Christianity being already an adult.
After several problems with senior officials who took him to exile in Sardinia, he returned to Rome and worked as a personal secretary of Pope Ceferino. At the death of this, he was elected his successor.
However, everything that is known about Calixto I papacy comes from the writings of Hipólito in Rome, with whom he was hardening. That is why the person of him surrounds multiple controversies.
Calixto is, in addition, the first Pope, after San Pedro, which appears as a martyr in the oldest Roman martyrology that is known.
