Book of Saints – Peter – 29 April

Saint Peter of VeronaArticle

(Saint) Martyr (April 29) (13th century) One of the most famous of Dominican Saints. He was an Italian, but born of heretical parents. Received into the Dominican Order by Saint Dominic himself, he at once became a model of prayer and penance. His lifework was the conversion of the Cathari or Manichseans, then swarming in the North of Italy. He was instrumental in the saving of countless souls, until at length the heretics succeeded in waylaying him, while on a journey, and in murdering him on the road from Como to Milan (A.D. 1252), he being then in his forty-seventh year.
