Saint Joseph Calasanz
Feast Day: August 25
Patronage: Catholic schools, colleges, universities, students
Saint Joseph Calasanz, a Spanish priest, founded the Pious Schools for the poor and destitute, and the Piarist Religious Order. He was educated in canon law and theology. At first, his work flourished, but because of prejudices and scheming, his Order and work were suppressed. Only after his death did the Piarist Order get formally recognized by the Pope. Throughout this trial, he had visions of Jesus and Mary and was able to read consciences. His heart and tongue are incorrupt.
