Which "Church Father" Are You?

This is great.  Click here for a short quiz to see which of the great Fathers of the Church you most think like.  I'm St. Mileto of Sardis.

This was a great quiz.

My result was :

You are St. Melito of Sardis!

You have a great love of history and liturgy. You’re attached to the traditions of the ancients, yet you recognize that the old world — great as it was — is passing away. You are loyal to the customs of your family, though you do not hesitate to call family members to account for their sins.

I'd say this was fairly accurate.

Hey, I'm St. Mileto of Sardis as well! Is this rigged? Not that the results aren't accurate!

Houston, we have a problem! I think what we have really identified is what us troglodyte bloggers have in common, and come up with the new patron saint of bloggers: St. Mileto of Sardis!

(I did try it again with different answers and came up with a different saint.)

Yep - another one bites the dust - and I don't mean the Detroit Lions, I too, am St. Melito of Sardis

I am St Justin Martyr. Pretty accurate I think.

You have a positive and hopeful attitude toward the world. You think that nature, history, and even the pagan philosophers were often guided by God in preparation for the Advent of the Christ. You find “seeds of the Word” in unexpected places. You’re patient and willing to explain the faith to unbelievers.

YOU ARE ST. JEROME!
You’re a passionate Christian, fiercely devoted to Jesus Christ and his Church. You are willing to labor long hours in the Lord’s vineyard, and you have little patience with those who are less willing or able to work as you do. Your passions often carry you into temptation zones of wrath, lust, and pride.


little patience...pride...yep, that's me!

Saint Jerome is my hero. He realized he had a short fuse and hot-blooded temper (must have been Italian) and could use some very 'colorful' language when animated, so he secluded himself to the desert so as not to be tempted. Many times I feel called to the desert just before losing my cool and blowing my top. Most people know him for his Latin translation of the Bible (Vulgate) from Hebrew and Greek in 400 AD.
