On the fifth day of the blessed month of Amshir, of the year 181 A.D., Pope Agrippinus, 10th pope of Alexandria, departed. This father was holy and pure and he feared God. He was ordained a priest on the church of Alexandria.
When Pope Celadion 9th Pope departed, Pope Agrippinus was chosen Patriarch by the people and clergy of Alexandria. By the grace of God, he took over the apostolic throne of Alexandria and walked in the footsteps of the apostles.
Pope Agrippinus preached the word of God and taught the principle of faith with its life- giving laws. He guarded his flock, with all his strength, by teaching them and praying on their behalf. He did not own any silver or gold, except for what met his basic personal needs. He completed his course after 12 years on the throne of St. Mark, and he departed in peace.
