St Malachi the Prophet
The last of the prophets of the Old Law, the minor prophet Malachi reproached the priests and people of Jerusalem for their unworthy sacrifices and foretold a new and perfect sacrifice that would be offered "from the rising, even to the setting, of the sun" (Mal. 1:11). His oracles were given just before the arrival in Jerusalem of Nehemiah, around 445 BC.
N.B. The Martyrologium Romanum (Vatican Press, 2004), the Church´s official list of holy men and women, lists the saints of the Old Law alongside those of the New.
