It happened on MARCH 18

Today is the liturgical memorial of St. Cyril of Jerusalem. Pope Leo XIII proclaimed him a Doctor of the Church in 1882. In one of his catechesis on baptism, St. Cyril wrote: “From one and the same earth come creeping things, and wild beasts, and cattle, and trees, and food; and gold, and silver, and brass, and iron, and stone. The nature of the waters is but one, yet from it comes the substance of fishes and of birds; whereby as the former swim in the waters, so the birds fly in the air […]. God’s command was but one, which said, Let the earth bring forth wild beasts, and cattle, and creeping things, after their kinds (Genesis 1:24): and from one earth, by one command, have sprung diverse natures, the gentle sheep and the carnivorous lion, and various instincts of irrational animals, bearing resemblance to the various characters of men” (Catechesis on Baptism, 9).
