Saint Philip Benizi - Servite Priest (1233-1285).
Saint Philip Benizi was born in Florence in 1233 in that same day the Order of Servites was founded by the Mother of God. His doubts were solved one day by Our Lady Herself, who in a vision during a Mass in Florence, bade him enter Her Order. He became General of the Order and only by flight did he escape elevation to the Papal throne: he retired to a grotto in the mountains until the conclave had ended.
