The youthful Italian St. Peregrine was so politically opposed to the papacy, that he struck St. Philip Benizi, who was trying to preach reconciliation. Being forgiven by the saint, he dramatically converted. Saint Peregrine eventually joined the Servants of Mary (The Servites) and became a priest. He dedicated his life to the sick, poor and the fringes of society. He was healed of a cancerous leg infection after contemplating Christ crucified, the evening before his leg was to be amputated.
