St. Seraphim of Montegranaro
October 12, 2024
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 12 of October, repeating indefinitely
St. Seraphim, who from early childhood looked after his father’s flocks, had acquired a love of solitude and prayer. After his father’s death he endured, with patience, continuous ill treatment from his older brother, until the age of sixteen when he entered the Capuchins. There he made great progress in all the virtues: regularity, penance, poverty, chastity, humility, obedience, love of the poor, scrupulousness of conscience and devotion to the Passion. He was loved by all because of his great goodness and his cheerfulness. He died in 1604.
