Book of Saints – Rainerius – 17 June


(Saint) (June 17) (12th century) Born of noble parents at Pisa (A.D. 1128), Rainerius (Ranieri), soon after attaining the age of manhood, gave himself up to a life of prayer, penance and good works. Especially, after his return from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, his advice, as a spiritual director, was sought by his fellow-citizens of all ranks. By his prayers he worked many miracles. He retired eventually to a monastery near Pisa, where he died A.D. 1160.
