☝ Saint Gerard Majella

born: Muro, april 23, 1725
died: Caposele, 1755

He was not a priest but served as a lay brother, tailor, gardener and porter with St Alphonsus Liguori. He felt these silly jobs proved just how humble he was. He was accused by a woman of being the father of her child, being a humble man, he did not deny it, but was cleared of the blame later.

He was known widely for his supernatural gifts. Bi-location, prophecy, levitation and great knowledge. A handkerchief he once dropped also has supernatural powers, it protects unborn children.
