St. Leo the Great was a fifth century pope. He was dedicated to the service of the church. During his papacy, he worked for Church unity. He also refuted several heresies. These included the Pelagian error, which was a thinking that humans could perfect themselves without God’s grace, and Manichaeism, which denied the goodness of creation and the physical world. He wrote many sermons on the nature of Christ and affirmed that Jesus Christ was both human and divine, two natures in one person.
