Extract from Saint Nicholas of Tolentino: “Born in 1245 in Sant’Angelo, St. Nicholas of Tolentino took his name from St. Nicholas of Myra, at whose shrine his parents prayed to have a child. Nicholas became a monk at 18, and seven years later, he was ordained a priest. C. 1274, he was sent to Tolentino, near his birthplace. The town suffered from civil strife between the Guelphs, who supported the pope, and Ghibellines, who supported the Holy Roman Emperor, in their struggle for control of Italy. Nicholas was primarily a pastor to his flock. He ministered to the poor and the criminal. He gained a reputation as a wonder-worker. Nicholas died in 1305 after a long illness. Eugene IV canonized him in 1446, and his relics were rediscovered in 1926 at Tolentino.”
