Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, MAY 23, 2014 Saint Peregrine by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Peregrine Laziosi was born at Forli, Italy in the year 1260. He grew up in a family that was opposed to the Papal States and papal rule, they were actively involved in the opposition, or anti-papal party. Because of anti-papal activity, the city was under the church penalty of interdict, meaning that Mass and the Sacraments could not be celebrated there. St. Philip Benizi, Prior General of the Servants of Mary, went to Forli to preach reconciliation. Per- egrine, who was eighteen and very intense in his political fervor, not only heckled Philip during his preaching, but, Struck him in the face. Philip, instead of responding with anger and violence, turned and forgave Peregrine. Peregrine was so overcome by Philip's spirit of forgiveness that he repented and experienced a spiritual conversion. Peregrine began directing his energy into good works and eventually joined the Friar Order of the Servants of Mary in Siena, Italy. He was sent to Forli to found a new house of the Servite Order. An ideal priest, he had a reputation for fervent preaching and being a good confessor. It is believed that he never allowed himself to sit down for 30 years, while as much as possible, observing silence a_nd solitude. When he was afflicted with cancer of the foot and amputation had been decided upon, he spent the night before the operation, in prayer. The following morning he was completely cured. This miracle caused his reputation to become widespread Peregrine died in 1345 at the age of 85, and he was canonized by Pope Benedict XIII on December 27, 1726. Saint Peregrine's Feast day is celebrated on May I st, he is the patron saint of cancer patients. ST.

THE NORTH END Where It All Began The Way It Was by Fred Langone SALE PRICE $19.95 Plus Shipping & Handling On Site at The Post-Gazette 5 Prince Street, North End, Boston, MA Two Trucks vs. McClellan Highway Highway Wins Twice by Sal Giarratani Reportedly, around 6:15 am on Tuesday, May 20 th, a tractor trailer hauling 38,000 pounds of watermelon attempted to pass under Route 1A at Day Square in East Boston headed apparently for the on-ramp to Boston, but the truck met the elevated highway and lost. The trailer nearly folded in half. Day Square around 9:30 am was still a traffic mess as vehicles were being detoured out of the square. A flatbed trailer was brought to the scene and the water- melons were transferred over to it and even- tually the tractor trailer was towed from the scene. Truck crashes at Day Square constantly happen about a month apart as yet another truck thinks it can pass under the elevated Route 1A on its way to Boston. Boston police responded quickly to the scene and managed to keep traffic flowing around the crash area. However, you can bet that there will be another truck crash in the not too distant future and the near distance future came 24 hours later. Resi- dents of the surrounding Eagle Hill neigh- borhood have come to expect these crashes and remain frustrated that no solution seems in sight. Good news though. There were no reported injuries among the watermelons being transported. They will all live and be on supermarket shelves in short order. CROSSWORD PUZZLE 19 th Century ACROSS CROSSWORD 1.
