Memorial of All the Saints of the Pauline Order

Are there any Pauline Saints? YES! Though the sanctity of the numerous members of our Order has been witnessed by countless graces both during and after this life, the Pauline monks, following an old tradition, have never sought the canonization of their members.

That is why on November 7th, the Pauline Fathers and Brothers celebrate the Memorial of All the Saints of the Pauline Order. Today, we ask for intercession of many......
