June 4 – Saint Francis Caracciolo
He began studying Latin when he was just six years old and Francis was extremely intelligent and good. His father wanted him to enter the military, but when he was just 20 years old he came down with a rare disease similar to leprosy. Then he decided to embrace religious life. He was miraculously healed, renounced his father’s inheritance, was ordained a priest, and worked with death row prisoners. St. Francis Caracciolo then joined the nascent Franciscan Order and continued his mission preaching and helping many get closer to God.
