Saint Bernardine of Siena - Franciscan Missionary Preacher (1380-1444).
Saint Bernardine was of noble birth, he had spent his youth in works of mercy, caring for the sick before he entered religion at the age of 24. He began an apostolate which lasted until he died and he obtained miraculous conversions and reformed the greater part of Italy by his burning words and by the power of the Holy Name of Jesus. Saint Bernardine would be canonized only six years after his death.
