  • Italian Saints/Popes/Religious Figures

    Agnes of Montepulciano
    She is most noted for her self-discipline and supernatural visions. She was canonized in 1726 by Pope Benedict XIII and they celebrate her feast day on April 20th.

    La Madonna della Civita
    The Sanctuary of the Madonna della Civita is one of the oldest in all of Italy. The Madonna holds a special place in my heart because of my family's devotion to her. Each year my family celebrates the feast of the Madonna by holding a special mass on the Sunday closest to her feast day, which is July 21.

    Padre Pio
    On June 16, 2002 in what was one of the largest attended masses in the history of the Vatican, Padre Pio was officially canonized and named a Saint. It was announced by Pope John Paul II that September 23 would be the feast day for the newly named Saint.

    Pope John Paul II
    On May 18, 1920 Karol Joseph Wojtyla was born in Wadowice Poland. Little did anyone know that he would become the most recognized person in the world.

    St. Anthony of Padua
    The feast day for St. Anthony is June 13. Included you will find a brief biography, prayers and lyrics to the song titled Invocazione Del Pellegrino A S. Antonio.

    St. Clare
    This brief biography includes a list of patronage, vital information and a photo gallery.

    Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini
    Widely recognized as the first American citizen canonized by the Roman Catholic Church, she is also acknowledged as the Patron Saint of immigrants. She gave hope to those desperately seeking help, offering assistance in both their material and spiritual needs.

    Saint Gemma Galgani
    At the age of 21 she was marked with the stigmata of the Passion on the hands, feet, head and heart, not permanently but at various intervals.

    One of the great traditions on St. Joseph's Day is the beautifully decorated altars made to honor the Patron Saint of carpenters, fathers and Sicily.

    Santa Lucia

    St. Patrick Is a Paesano Our Paesani -
    March 17 is the feast day of St. Patrick, known to Italians as San Patrizio. Although Patrizio's celebration is overshadowed - in Italy at least - by that of San Giuseppe (St. Joseph) on March 19, Patrizio has his own ties to Italy. His parents were Romans.

    St. Valentine
    This is a brief account of the life of the patron saint of lovers.
