Saint Lawrence of Brindisi
Today, July 21, the Church honors Saint Lawrence of Brindisi, Priest and Doctor of the Church.
From The Liturgy of the Hours:
Saint Lawrence was born in 1559. He entered the Capuchin Friars, taught theology to his fellow religious, and was chosen to fill positions of leadership in his order. He became famous throughout Europe as an effective and forceful preacher. He wrote many works explaining the faith and died at Lisbon in 1619.
