St. Leo the Great, born in Rome, served as deacon before being elected pope. He was consecrated on September 29, 440 and began his pontificate by preaching ninety-six sermons in opposition to heresies of the time. St. Leo’s main focus was bringing religious and political unity to Rome. He tried to defend his people against the Vandals and the Huns. He also sent missionaries to Africa. St. Leo died in Rome on January 10, 461 and was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1754.
The St. Leo Sterling Silver Medal honors him as the Patron Saint of speakers. His Feast Day is November 10.
