Blessed Jeremiah

Today is also the feast of Blessed Jeremiah of Walachia, a 16th century Romanian Capuchin who came to some fame serving his sick brothers in Italy.

And let me tell you from personal experience, this ministry is no joke.

I couldn't find a bio about him in English, but if you want to practice your Portuguese, click here.

"Ieremia Valahul" is the name in Romanian...

If you google that, you can come up with some webpages that at least show some paintings.

I have seen an icon image of him online before, but no longer can find it.

Hello. I am a romanian capuchin brother and whoever is interested in Blessed Jeremiah, please contact me at br_danny_cc@yahoo.co.uk, or check the Romanian Capuchin site at www.ofmcapucini.ro. As an idea, his mortal rests returned this year, on 31st of may in the sanctuary to him dedicated, from Onesti, Romania, where is the romanian Curia of the capuchin friars. Peace and good!
