detail of a painting of Blessed Bartolomeo Pucci-Franceschi, date and artist unknown; swiped from Santi e BeatiMemorial


Born to the wealthy Tuscan nobility. Married and the father of four. Noted for his charity to the poor, especially in times of famine. In 1290, when his children were grown, Bartolomeo left his wealth and family to become a Franciscan friar at the convent of San Francisco in Montepulciano, Italy. Many of the locals considered him insane to give up the one social position for the other, but he was a model of religious devotion. Priest. Received visions of Mary and the angels, and was known as a miracle worker.
