December 21 - Saint Peter Canisius


His father wanted him to be a lawyer and to please him, Peter began to study law. Peter quickly realized that he would never be happy in that life. He met Peter Faber, a Jesuit, and decided to join him in the Society of Jesus. He worked as a Jesuit in Germany for many years and fought against the heresies of the time. St. Peter Canisius was a writer and the two catechisms he wrote are widely known.
