Blessed Torello of Poppi

March 16

|Recurring Event (See all)

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

(1202-1282)

He was known as a troublemaker as a young man. All that changed one day when a rooster landed on his arm, crowing three times — just as the rooster had reminded St. Peter of his betrayal of Jesus. Shocked, Torello left his friends immediately, made a long confession, and became a hermit in the woods for the next 50 years. There, he rescued a child from a great wolf, whom he later befriended.
