Information

 

St. Francis of Paola was born in 1436 and joined the Franciscans at age 13. He founded numerous religious orders all over France and was the spiritual director of King Louis XI, Charles VIII, and Louis XII of France. St. Francis died in 1507 and was canonised only 12 years later in 1519. His deathbed prayer was as follows:

Beloved Jesus, preserve the just; justify sinners; have compassion on all the faithful, living and dead; be merciful to me, although I am nothing more than an unworthy sinner.
