St. Jerome which fits in well with my love of Latin. :D

The description also fits me pretty well: You’re a passionate Christian, fiercely devoted to Jesus Christ and his Church. You are willing to labor long hours in the Lord’s vineyard, and you have little patience with those who are less willing or able to work as you do. Your passions often carry you into temptation zones of wrath, lust, and pride.

Latin can shove it.

St. Jerome here as well.

The description is accurate for me if I make a few changes:

You’re . . . passionate . . . . Your passions often carry you into . . . wrath, lust, and pride.

I completely forgot about this quiz.  A year later taking it, all of a sudden I become Origen, but this confuses!

The questions given to me, I didn't like the answers, I simply crossed out what was the most ridiculous that doesn't match my personality.

Oh well...Origen it is...let's see what next year brings  :P
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

St. Justin Martyr

"You think that nature, history, and even the pagan philosophers were often guided by God in preparation for the Advent of the Christ. You find “seeds of the Word” in unexpected places. You’re patient and willing to explain the faith to unbelievers."

This explains why people at parties wrangle me into philosophical discussions, even when I'm too tired to participate.

"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.
