Our father among the saints Rufus of Rome was Roman and a disciple of the Apostle Paul. His feast day is celebrated on November 21.

Life

Rufus is among the many people to whom the Apostle Paul sends greetings in the last chapter of his Epistle to the Romans, noting in Romans 16:13: “Salute Rufus chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine.”

In some traditions, Rufus is also considered to be the son of Simon of Cyrene as mentioned in Mark 15:21, and to have also served as a bishop. Rufus is believed to have reposed about the year 90.
