I am St Alexander. I followed Achillas in the see (church headquarters) of Alexandria in 313 A.D.
I cared for the poor, in my mild mannered way. In administrative positions, I somewhat favored
monks who had lived in solitude for Church positions.
Sadly, during my administration, the Alexandrian priest Arius joined Meletius, Bishop of Lycopolis. Meletius broke away from Peter, the Alexandrian patriarch in 300 A.D. But Meletius returned to the faith.
Patriarch Peter took Meletius back, after he repented. And ordained Arius deacon. Arius returned to his usurper ways, causing problems in working for the Meletians.
Peter excommunicated Arius. But Achillas took him back after he repented. Then made him a priest, curator of a church in the Baucales region of Alexandria.
Arius denied Yeshua as God. Father Athanasius told us that Arius claimed Yeshua other than his created divinity, or spiritual substance, was made before the world.
I tried to persuade Arius back to truth. Colluthus was not pleased with my lenient behavior of Arius. He precipitated.
But soon he returned to the fold of Holy Mother Church. Learning that the followers of Arius were increasing, I called Arius before the clergy as a group. I excommunicated him around the latter part of 320 A.D.
condemned him and his followers, calling anathema condemned by the synod.
I wrote Pope Sylvester about the problems Arius was causing. Even Emperor Constantine intervened to inquire about the matters.
I sat in on the First Council of Nicea in 325
A.D. 26 Feb. I went home to Yeshua's judgment, 326 A.D.
I brought Athanasius to the meetings that discussed Arius, who was exiled. I died 26 Feb. 326 A.D. Athanasius succeeded me.
