He was the youngest child of a large family; though his par- ents were of noble station they were poor. Peter was orphaned at an early age; he was cared for by his brother Damian, who was archpriest at Ravenna. Peter added the name Damian to his own in grateful recognition of his brother's kindness. The child showed signs of great piety and of remark- able intellectual gifts. He made rapid progress in his studies, first at Ravenna, then at Faenza, finally at the University of Parma, where at the early age of twenty- five, he had already become a well-known teacher, both at Parma and Ravenna. It was about the year 1035 when Peter decided to pur- sue an ascetic life, detached from the world. He encoun- tered two hermits from the Camaldolese Abbey of Fonte- Avellana, which was located at the foot hills of the Apennines in Umbria. En- I 01.11" 1 1 [1 I ]l [lll In, 11 [C1-, lI" ter a retreat of forty days, decided to enter the "silent life" as it is often referred to; he was accepted at the ab- bey where he received the monastic habit. Both as a novice and professed reli- gious his fervor was remark- able, he was given to per- forming acts of penance, so much so that for a time his health was affected. He spent his convalescence studying Holy Scripture, on his recovery, he was asked to lecture to his fellow monks in neighboring mon- asteries. Saint Peter spent the next three years lectur- ing and writing; soon after his return to Fonte-Avellana he was appointed successor to the prior, becoming prior in 1043, a position he re- tained till his death. Peter governed his monas- tery with wisdom and sanc- tity. He also founded five other hermitages; in which he placed priors under his care instilling in them the spirit of solitude, charity, and humility. Among them many became great lights of the church. He was for 12 years actively employed in the service of the church by many bishops, and by four popes successively, namely, Gregory VI, Clement II, Leo IX, and Victor II. Pope Stephen IX, in 1057, made him Cardinal-bishop of Ostia, a post Peter reluctantly accepted, as his heart re- mained always close to the "silent life" of the monastery. In 1059 Peter was sent as emissary to Milan by Pope Nicholas II, where with Saint Anselm, Bishop of Lucca they strove to correct mishandlings that had crept into the local church. Peter confronted the problem and successfully re-asserted the authority of Rome. Unfortu- nately, on the death of Nicholas II, the same dis- putes broke out; and were not settled until 1066. St. Peter was sent as legate by Pope Alexander II, to ad- just the affairs of the church ii1 ll KHll[I. 13HEE ilgi]iI1 lie settled a local crisis; this was his last undertaking for the church. On his return he was seized with fever near Faenza. He lay ill for a week at the monastery of Santa Maria degl'Angeli, now Santa Maria Vecchia. He passed on February 21, 1072. He is honored as patron of Faenza and Font-Avellano. In 1823 Leo XII extended his feast February 23, to the whole Church and pro- nounced him a Doctor of the Church.
