St. Philip Neri, affectionately known as “Pippo Buono,” was born in Florence, Italy on July 22, 1515. He lived a long, fruitful and holy life that ended May 25, 1595.May 26 th is the feast day of this incredible and prolific saint. The chronology of his life demonstrates God’s abundant gifts manifested in a soul fully cooperating with grace. St. Philip Neri was the embodiment of that.
Even the German freemason Goethe loved Philip of Neri, who has been nicknamed the Happy Saint. Along with his sense of humor and likeability, Philip also had his share of legends and miracles. The most enduring legend was that his heart became so big physically that it pushed a couple of his ribs out of the way and almost burst through his skin, so great was his love for mankind.
Philip’s brother died in childhood, but his two sisters, Caterina and Elisabetta survived. Known as a pius youth, Philip was taught humanities by the Dominicans. The family moved to San Germano in 1533 to help some relatives with their business, and while there Philip would escape to a local Dominican chapel in the mountains.
