|Life of St. Peregrine Laziosi
Peregrine was born into a wealthy family, experiencing a worldly youth and later was active in politics. He was initially anti-Catholic and was a member of the anti-papal party. During an uprising, he struck St. Philip Benizi in the face. St. Philip turned the other cheek, prayed for Peregrine and at that moment Peregrine repented and converted.
He received a vision of the Blessed Virgin who told him to join the Servites in Siena, Italy. In an attempt to do penance for his early life, he tried to live in solitude and silence and while working, did not sit down for 30 years.
He suffered with a spreading cancer in his foot and leg. The night before his scheduled amputation, he prayed and received a vision of Christ who healed him with a touch. The next morning, he was cured completely.
