Saint of the Day

St. Pascal Baylon (1540-1592)
Pascal was a shepherd before becoming a Franciscan lay-brother. He had a strong devotion to the Holy Eucharist, defending the Real Presence against the attacks of Calvinists. Despite his lack of education, many people, both rich and poor, sought his counsel.
