St_Francis_CaraccioloSt. Francis Caracciolo, born in the kingdom of Naples, was one of the founders of the Order of Clerks Regular, who in turn watched in perpetual adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. His short life of 40 years was profitable in the sight of God; he edified by his holy life, not only Naples and Rome, but also distant Spain. He died June 4th 1608, and was canonized by Pope Pius VII.
