Views 755


The life of Serv. of God Andrew of Burgio, Confessor, First Order (1705-1772) for the July 3rd Franciscan Saint of the Day. He was a lay brother in the capuchins who reached great heights of sanctity through his forbearance, performing many miracles and conducted fruitful work in the mission of Africa in the Congo.

Reflection is on patient forbearance to grow in sanctity and win conversions, that forbearance does not mean sloth and finally how to obtain this virtue.
