Nov. 13: Feast Day of St. Agostina Pietrantoni

by | Nov 13, 2016 | Formation

Today is the feast day of Saint Agostina Livia Pietrantoni (1864-1894), of the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Jeanne-Antide Thouret. From her page on the Vatican website:

Sister Agostina was sent to the Hospital of Santo Spirito where 700 years of glorious history had led it to be called “the school of Christian charity.” In the wake of the saints who had preceded her, amongst whom were Charles Borromeo, Joseph Casalanz, John Bosco, Camillus de Lellis, she made her personal contribution and in this place of suffering gave expression to charity to the point of heroism.
