Saint Lawrence of Brindisi was raised and educated in Italy by the Franciscans. At 16, he entered the Capuchin order, continuing his extensive studies in theology, philosophy, and languages. Talented as a linguist in over six languages, and an orator with a great memory, he was sent all over Europe serving as a peacemaker, chaplain, teacher, evangelist, and writer. He founded convents and monasteries to help serve the Church in troubled times. In 1959, St. Lawrence was declared a Doctor of the Church.
