3. St. Cletus 76-92

Cletus

Not much is known about the 3rd Pope. Most historians can’t even agree on his name. Some sources have it as Anacletus,or Anencletus,or just plain Cletus,which in ancient greek means “One who has been called”. He may have ordained a uncertain number of priests and he may have divided up Rome into 25 different parishes,but even that may have been credited to him by historians just to give the poor guy something to do. We really don’t even know what he looked like. All I know is that with a name like Cletus,it took a lot of restraint not to model him after Jerry Reed.
