Saint Philip Neri

One of my favorite saints has his feast day today, St. Philip Neri. He had a great sense of humor, reformed the church in Rome, and he’s Italian.

There’s so much more. He was influential in the lives of St. Charles Boromeo, St. Francis de Sales, and St. Ignatius Loyola. He founded the Congregation of the Oratory (and also was influential in founding the kind of music called the Oratori0) and I could go on and on.

But here, someone else already went on and on for me.

He’s a great guy and I consider him one of my “patrons” whose prayers I ask for. Take a little time to learn about this awesome saint today.
