Feast Day: St. Joseph of Leonissa

St. Joseph of Leonissa (1556-1612)

This is one of those cool saints I hadn’t heard much about (here’s a very cool article about his work). He was a Capuchin missionary, first evangelizing within Italy and then sent to Constantinople, where he ministered to the 4,000 Christian slaves and evangelized the Muslims.
