Bl. Stephen Bandelli
Friar and Priest
Blessed Stephen was born at Castelnuovo in Scrivia, Italy in 1369, and received the habit at Piacenza. He taught philosophy and theology at the University of Pavia, but was especially known for his preaching and his ability as a confessor. So fiery was his preaching that people acclaimed him another Saint Paul. He died at Saluzzo on June 11, 1450.
