Our father among the saints '''Clement of Rome''' (also called '''Clemens Romanus''' to distinguish him from [[Clement of Alexandria]]) was the third in succession after the [[Apostle Peter]] as bishop of Rome. Clement is known mainly for the letter he wrote to the Corinthians in about AD 96. He is counted among the [[Church Fathers|apostolic fathers]]. His [[feast day]] is [[November 23]]in the west, but in the east he is remembered on [[November 25]]).
A second letter to the Corinthians had also been attributed to Clement based upon its inclusion in a Greek manuscript that included Clement’s first letter, with the title of “Second Epistle of Clement to the Corinthians.” But, when a missing ending to the “letter” was found, it proved to be a [[homily]] of unknown authorship.
[[Troparion]] ([[Tone]] 4)
:O God of our Fathers,
:Take not away Your mercy from us,
:But ever act towards us according to Your kindness,
:And by the prayers of Your saints
:Guide our lives in peace!
[[Kontakion]] - (Tone 4)
:O Clement and Peter,
:You are worthy of all praise!
:Holy and unassailable strongholds of the Church;
:Inspired models of true faith and devotion:
:Guard us all through your intercessions!
