April 15

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00am on of April, repeating indefinitely

(February 3, 1544 – April 15, 1607)

Caesar was a wealthy young man with lots of options for how he might live out his life. He was educated by the Jesuits, and loved literature. He wrote a few plays. He decided that he would like to try a military career, but was cured of that when he saw the horrors of battle. Like many great Saints, Caesar took some time when he became ill to re-evaluate what he wanted to do with his life. He became a priest and developed a family catechesis program for people who lived in the countryside. Also like many great Saints, a religious congregation grew up around his work–the Fathers of Christian Doctrine. He’s the patron saint of catechists.
