Day 405

St. Benedict Joseph Labre

February 7th, 2013

This church is the only one in the world dedicated to St. Benedict Joseph Labre, who, sometime in his early 20s, felt a calling to "abandon his country, his parents, and whatever is flattering in the world to lead a new sort of life, a life most painful, most penitential, not in a wilderness nor in a cloister, but in the midst of the world, devoutly visiting as a pilgrim the famous places of Christian devotion".
