St. Ignatius of Laconi (1721-1781)
He was born in Laconi (Oristano), Sardinia in 1701. He wore the Franciscan garb in the Order of the Minor Capuchin Brothers. He was a pauper for forty years, giving example of humility and charity in the city of Cagliari, which was during these four decades, the field of his apostolate, built with love among the poor and the fishermen. God enhanced him with special supernatural that endeared him to all social classes. He died in 1781 and was canonized by Pio XII in 1951.
