Today, Tuesday April 4, the Catholic Church pays homage to Saint Casimir.

Casimir was born in 1458 in Krakow (southern Poland). He was the third of the thirteen children of King Casimir. His mother Elizabeth, daughter of the Emperor of Austria, took great care in the Catholic formation of her children.

Casimiro eminently cultivated the Christian virtues, especially chastity and charity with the poor. A great defender of the faith, he had a particular devotion to the Eucharist and the Virgin Mary.

He died of tuberculosis in 1484 in Grodno (former Poland) and is buried in Vilnius (Lithuania).

After 120 years of his death, they opened his tomb and found his body incorrupt, as if he had just been buried. Not even his clothes had been damaged, and that the place where they had buried him was very humid.

The Catholic saints are the group of people recognized by the Church as saints or blessed on a specific date. The Roman Martyrology is the document that names and distributes in the calendar the almost 7,000 saints and blessed recognized by the Church.

The saints and saints are prominent men and women in the various religious traditions for their special relationships with the divinities or for a particular ethical elevation. While the consideration of blessed constitutes the third step on the path to canonization.
