Saint Jerome Emiliani is the founder of the Clerks Regular of Somaschini. In 1508, he was the military commander of Venice, fighting the League of Cambrai, when he was taken, prisoner. In prison, he gave his life to Christ and was miraculously released. In 1518, Jerome was ordained to the priesthood. He gave his whole life to the poor and suffering, founding orphanages, hospitals and shelters for prostitutes. St. Jerome died of the plague, in 1537, after caring for its victims.
