Blessed Gerard Mecatti

He was born in 1174, at Villamagna not far from Florence. As soon as he reached his adolescence, he led an existence worthy of admiration for his humility, piety and compassion for the poor. At an early age, he requested and obtained admission as a "serving brother" in the Order of Saint John, in which he set an example of selfless charity, giving all he owned to the unfortunate. (Feast: 18 May)
