Saint Romuald’s Story (c. 950 – June 19, 1027) In the midst of a wasted youth, Romuald watched his father kill a relative in a duel over property. In horror he fled to a monastery near Ravenna.

Saint Aloysius Gonzaga’s Story (March 9, 1568 – June 21, 1591) The Lord can make saints anywhere, even amid the brutality and license of Renaissance life.

Portsmouth, Hampshire PO5 2PL United Kingdom

Saint John Fisher’s Story (1469 – June 22, 1535) John Fisher is usually associated with Erasmus, Thomas More, and other Renaissance humanists.
