Evaristus, a Greek by birth, was unanimously elected Pope when The Holy See became vacant at the death of Pope Anacletus I in 92 A.D.

It was Saint Evaristus who first divided Rome into "Titles", or Parishes, appointing to each a Priest.

He prescribed that seven Deacons should surround the Bishop when he preached, for the greater honour of The Word of God and of the Episcopal dignity.

Pope Saint Evaristus was condemned to death under Emperor Trajan in 109 A.D.

Mass: Státuit, for a Martyr Bishop.
