Padre Pio has become one of the most popular saints in the world. St. Pio of Pietrelcina or Padre Pio, was born in the small Italian village of Pietrelcina on May 25, 1887. Then known as Franscesco, in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, he was born to two peasant farmers, Giuseppa and Grazio Forgione. The day after his birth, he was baptized at the Castle Church near his home. The town of Pietrelcina was very religious and saint's feast days were celebrated throughout the year, this had a strong influence on the Forgione family. From early on it was clear that Franscesco was a special child of God. As child he was very pious and decided he wanted to be a priest at a very early age. At age 16, he became a Capuchin novice and received the

When I was told to choose a saint to be my patron saint for Confirmation, I thought the choice was obvious for me. It took me just a few moments and one quick touch to my neck to remember my patron saint, Saint Sebastian. I have a medal that I wear every time I leave the house with a picture of Saint Sebastian that says “Saint Sebastian Pray For Us.” I was given this medal when I was very young.
For my Saint report, I chose Saint Veronica. Saint Veronica is known as the lady who offered a fabric to Jesus so he could wipe his face while in transit to his torturous killing. The material is accepted to exist today in the Vatican and is viewed as a standout amongst the most prized relics of the Congregation. Saint Veronica is not specified in the book of scriptures, but rather is known not by Catholic custom and in the 6th Station of the Cross, "Veronica Wipes the Substance of Jesus."
When I was in third grade, I received my Confirmation with the Confirmation name of Saint Maria. In the Greensburg Diocese, Confirmation names were the child’s middle name, so I did not have a choice in who my Confirmation saint would be. I chose to research Saint Lucia because her name has the same meaning as my first name. I also chose to research her because she has a very interesting, and powerful story about the trials and tribulations she went through to devote her life to
Saint Rose of Lima is the patron saint of beauty due to her remarkable appearance.Rose is an innovation to many, because unlike many people today, she loathed her beauty due to being too alluring. I chose Saint Rose because she didn’t like people being tempted by her or staring at her. Rose only wanted to satisfy her parents and God. I also chose this saint because throughout her early life, she did things people normally would not contemplate or endeavour. Her feast day is on August 23th on the modern calendar, and in some countries it is on August 30th.
The saint I chose for my project is Saint Cecilia. I chose this Saint because she is the Saint of Music and at my school I play an instrument. No one knows exactly when Saint Cecilia was born but people believe she died around 117 A.D (After Death). Saint Cecilia's body was discovered incorrupt in 1599, she is known for being the first incorrupt saint. She was Married to a man named Valerian, but she still wanted to stay a virgin. Valerian was not a Catholic.
The principal architectural elements of this design are the three aisled basilica with no transepts. The basilica is an axially planned church with a long nave, side aisles, and an apse for the altar. Santa Sabina also has a long, tall, broad nave, following an axial plan. The spolia are the tall slender columns. Santa Sabina has windows made not of glass, but of selenite, a type of transparent and colorless gypsum. Santa Sabina also has a flat wooden roof, coffered ceiling, and thin walls supporting a light roof. As an early Christian basilica, Santa Sabina has thin walls supporting wooden roofs with coffered ceilings. Lastly, Santa Sabina has a bare exterior with a sensitively decorated interior, which represents the Christian whose exterior may not be very attractive, but whose interior soul is gorgeous. Santa Sabina is made from brick and stone.
I should acquire the San Pellegrino instead of Ollie because of multiple vindications and reasons. First off, I have a suspicion that Ollie peculated the drink twice yesterday. He already possesses a reputation for stealing belongings from others. Second, Ollie always sits on his fat ass playing Roblox and lounging around every day. If anything, I am involved in more physical activity and therefore deserve the drink more than he does. Lastly, Ollie is a growing boy who already eats plenty of processed sugar every day, and giving him the San Pellegrino will only aggravate his
Saint Peter was born in Bethsaida Gaulanitis, Syria Roman Empire at around 1 AD. Peter’s feast day is on the twenty ninth of June. Bethsaida Gaulanitis was near where the Jordan River enters the Sea of Gennesaret. This place was abandoned at around 65 AD. Peter’s original name appointed to him by his parents was Simon, it became Peter when Jesus changed his name. His father’s name was Jonah. Jonah was a physically strong individual, hence he became a fisherman. Peter deeply followed in his father’s footsteps. His mother’s name was Perpetua. Not much is known about her. Peter also had a brother named, Andrew. Andrew was another one of Jesus’s twelve disciples. Peter did not go to school, he was just taught by his father in the trade of fishing

Giovanni di Pietro di Bernardone, better known as St. Francis of Assisi (Assisi, July 5, 1182 1 - October 3, 1226), was a Catholic friar from Italy. After a restless and worldly youth, turned to a religious life of complete poverty, founding a mendicant Order of Friars Minor, more commonly known as the Franciscans, who renewed Catholicism of his time. With the habit of itinerant preaching, when the religious of his time used to set up in monasteries, and with his belief that the Gospel should be strictly followed, imitating the life of Christ, developed a deep identification with the problems of our fellows and humanity of Christ himself. His attitude was also said when the original goodness and wonder of creation at a time when the world was
To me, Saint Quiteria has proven she is more than worthy of being called a saint. Saint Quiteria was born during the second century, and was a part of a nonuplet, or nine children born at the same time. Quiteria’s mother and father were both high figures a part of the Roman Empire. Her mother feared she would be compared to an animal, because of the amount of daughters she had at once, she ordered a maiden from town to drown her nine baby daughters. The maiden taking mercy on the children, decided to raise them with the other peasant women. The nine children were raised in a close-community and raised in the Catholic faith. A few years later, the daughters were arrested for refusing to believe in a Roman god, and they were all taken to the governor – who was their father¬ - who recognized them through their familiar features.
