Pope Francis Marks Fifth Centenary of Canonization of Saint Francis of Paola

Patron of Calabria and of Italian People of Sea

Pope Francis made special mention of Saint Francis of Paola during his May 1, 2019, General Audience in St. Peter’s Square:

“Today is the fifth Centenary of the Canonization of Saint Francis of Paola, Founder of the Order of Minims, Patron of Calabria and of the Italian People of the Sea. I would like to exhort his spiritual children and all those that have him as heavenly Patron to put into practice his message of ‘continual conversion,’ which speaks to us again today of unconditional love for God, for brothers and for Creation.”
