St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows
An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 27 of February, repeating indefinitely
The young Italian saint, who died at the age of twenty-four, like St. Aloysius Gonzaga, is a model of youth entirely possessed by the grace of God. Born in 1838, in 1856 he joined the Passionists, took his vows, received minor orders and died on February 27, 1862. Only an exact performance of all the duties of his state and a very ardent devotion to Our Lady’s sorrows distinguished him from his fellow students. Benedict XV canonized him in 1920.
