Felix of Cantalicio, Saint

Felix Of Cantalicio, Saint an Italian monk, was born at Cantalicio, Umbria, in 1513. He took the habit of a Capuchin, in 1543, at Ascoli. In 1546 he was sent to Rome as a mendicant friar. During a plague which desolated Rome in 1580, Felix made himself remarkable by his truly Christian zeal; as also during a famine in 1585. In spite of his privations and penances he lived to the age of seventy-four. Urban VIII beatified him October 1, 1625; Innocent X commenced his canonization February 6, 1652, and Clement XI finished it, May 8, 1709. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
