Saint Philip Neri

Saint Philip was born at Florence, Italy, on July 22, 1515.

Saint Philip was educated by the Dominicans of San Marco in Florence. When he was eighteen, he was sent to San Germano to pursue a business career, but a mystical experience he had turned him to the religious life. He went to Rome in 1533, lived there almost as a recluse for two years while tutoring two sons of a wealthy Florentine, and then studied philosophy and theology at the Sapienza and Sant' Agostino for three years. He began to preach on the streets and in the markets to the Romans, whose religious practices had become lukewarm and were frequently neglected; the city was corrupt and the Church reflected the current malaise of the secular society.

"Cheerfulness strengthens the heart and makes us persevere in a good life. Therefore the servant of God ought always to be in good spirits." -Saint Philip Neri
