Venerable Solanus Casey -- Saint of the Day

The Venerable Fr Solanus Casey, ordained priest 'simplex', unable to preach or hear Confessions, became one of the greatest, most respected porters in the US by his patient counsel, prayers, etc.

An Irishman from Wisconsin...

My mother remembers having met him once, long ago in Appleton, WI, but is unclear on the details any longer. She told me about meeting him a long time ago, and I think that it may have been when she was a patient in the hospital at St Elizabeth's in about 1954, but that would be hard to know for certain. He may have been visiting the Capuchin parish at St Joe's.
