⛪ Saint Severino Gallo - Mercedarian Friar, Martyr

Saint of the Day : January 1

Saint Severino Gallo,
Pray for us !
A native of France, Saint Severino Gallo was a very famous Doctor of the University of Paris and very well known in the Mercedarian Order. Finding himself in Algiers, in Africa for redemption, he was captured by a Muslim prince, who, seeing him very faithful to Christ, ordered to convert to Islam; he refused. Torn with very refined torture, he was then nailed to a stake and thus reached the choir of martyrs in the year 1419. 

The Order celebrates it on January 1st.
