Saint Andrew Bobola - Jesuit, Martyr (1592-1657).
Saint Andrew Bobola, born in Poland in 1592, was sent while still young to the Jesuit school at Sandomir. God blessed both the family and the Jesuits in this future martyr, who would bring both of them great glory. He entered that Order in 1611. Saint Andrew was beatified by Pope Pius IX in 1853, and canonized in 1938 by Pope Pius XI.
