The Fall of one empire means the Rise of another as the Church expands in the Fifth Century

     As the proud Roman Empire was imploding from within, another organization which had set-up in Rome through the efforts of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, was expanding to the far reaches of the empire thanks to the dedication of such stalwart missionaries as Saint Patrick and the sage foresight of holy pontiffs during the fifth century, most notably Pope Leo the Great who, through the aid of the Holy Spirit stopped the "Scourge of God" - Attila the Hun at the gates of Rome. For the sixteenth installment titled The Fifth Century: The Century of St. Patrick, St. Leo the Great, and the Fall of the Roman Empire , click on THE HISTORY OF THE MASS AND HOLY MOTHER CHURCH.
