Saint Hannibal Mary Di Francia, also known as Annibale Maria Di Francia, was an Italian priest known for founding a series of orphanages, the Rogationist Fathers and Daughters of Divine Zeal. His father died when he was very young, which caused him to be empathetic towards orphans. He became a priest in 1878 and with the encouragement of his archbishop and St. John Bosco, Hannibal started a school and orphanage for young children, called the Anthonian Orphanages. Through prayer, and by publishing newsletters, his work thrived. He died of natural causes in Messina, Italy in 1927.
