St Lawrence Giustiniani
St Lawrence became the first Patriarch of Venice in 1451. He was a great reformer of the Church, especially through his writing and his example. A nobleman by birth, Lawrence did not hesitate to beg for alms, calling it a “victory over himself”. He was canonized by Alexander VIII in 1690.
