Blessed Sante of Cori

Sante (died 1392) was an Augustinian Friar known for his powerful preaching of the Gospel. He not only preached the Word, but also lived in accord with what he preached.

Sante was born in Cori, Lazio, Italy sometime in the first half of the fourteenth century. He entered the Order of Saint Augustine while a young man.

So powerful was his preaching that, according to a report written soon after his death, people would listen with total attention for many days. His life was marked by a spirit of penance. He was called “full of God’s grace” in an ancient document written by his fellow townsman Augustinian Prior General (world leader) Ambrose Massari.

Sante died in 1392. The exact date of his death is not known.
