(died 1260)

Luchesius and Buonadonna were a married couple; Luchesius was a merchant who cared more about money than anything else. But at some point he decided to change his ways and pursue the wealth of heaven instead. He and his wife were going to enter separate monasteries, but St. Francis urged them to live out the way of holiness as a married couple. They gave everything away to the poor, and are remembered as the first members of the Third Order of St. Francis
