He received his education from Philastrius, a Spaniard, who traveled all over Italy disputing the doctrines of Arius as heresy. (In theology, Arianism is the be- lief that Jesus is only the highest of created beings. Arianism de- nies Jesus as being of the same substance as God.) Philastrius, later to become a saint himself, was elected Bishop of Brescia and became known for his gen- tleness and humility. As a pro- fessor to Gaudentius, he earned the respectful title of "father." At the end of his studies, Gaudentlus went on pilgrimage to Jerusalem where he became a monk at Caesarea in Cappado- cia. During his absence his dear friend and teacher, Philastrius, died. By popular concent, Gaudentius was elected Bishop. Though he felt unworthy to ac- cept such a position, he, influ- enced by other Eastern Bishops, was consecrated by Bishop Am- b:ose (St. Ambrose 12/7) in 387. Like his mentor, Gaudentius was not only a prudent and humble insniratlon to his oeoole. 1913 -- 1986 In Memory of Everette H. Dunbar Dear Dad, It's been four years since you passed away, But in our hearts you're there each day, We think of you in our daily lives, How you understood and was so forgiving, We think back to when we were young and small, Some of the things you did we didn't understand at all. But as we grow older and the years go by, We understand the things you did and why. I love you Daddy.

In the year 405, Bishop Gaudentius, having gained a reputation for his humble asser- tiveness, was sent in the com- pany of two others by Pope Inno- cent I and Emperor Honorius of Rome to Constantinople, Turkey to defend John Chrysostom (9/ 13) before the heresy charges of Emperor Arcadius. The three travelers were captured and em- prisloned at Thrace on the bor- der of Greece and Turkey. After an effmtless offering of heavy bribes denouncing the character of Chrysostom, they were later returned to Italy in a completely unseaworthy ship. After his re- turn to Italy, Gaudentius re- ceived a letter from Chrysostom thanking him for his effo~ 's. The good man died about the year 410.
