Saint Peter Damian

Saint of the Day for February 21

(988 – February 22, 1072)

Canonized: 1823

Peter was born in Italy in 1007. When his parents died, he went to live with one of his older brothers, who treated him cruelly. Sometimes Peter was forbidden to eat any of his brother’s food. Another brother helped solve the problem by giving Peter money so that he could afford to go away to school.
