Saint for the Day November 26th

St. Leonard of Port Maurice.(1676-1751)

Born at Porto Maurizio, on the Italian Riviera, he studied in the Roman College and became a Franciscan of the Strictest Observance in the convent of St. Bonaventure on the Palatine.  Soon after his ordination he began his career as missionary, spreading everywhere devotion to the Sacred Heart, to the Blessed Sacrament, the Immaculate Conception and to the Stations of the Cross.  He is said to have established the way of the Cross in five hundred and seventy-two places, including the Colosseum in Rome.  He was a prolific ascetical writer, his works filling thirteen volumes.  In 1744 he was sent to restore discipline in Corsica.  In 1751 he was called to Rome by Benedict XIV but died on the night after his arrival at his old friary of St. Bonaventure.  He was Canonised in 1867.

Quote for Today.

‘Courage is not simply one of the virtues but the form of every virtue at the testing point.’
