Saint Anthony Maria Zaccaria - Founder (1502-1539).
Saint Anthony Maria Zaccaria was born at Cremona, Italy, in 1502, of noble parents. As a child he gave his coat to a poor beggar who was shivering with cold. He studied philosophy and medicine at the Universities of Pavia and Padua and became a licensed physician in 1524. Despite opposition of various kinds, in 1532 the Constitutions of his two communities were approved by Pope Clement VII.
