About the book
The “Apostle of Rome,” the “Reformer of the Church,” the “Saint of Christian Joy”—these and many other titles are given to Saint Philip Neri (1515–1595). A priest at the age of thirty-six, he never ceased to bring to Rome and the world the fire of the Holy Spirit that burned in his heart. In 15 Days of Prayer with Philip Neri, you will discover a joyful companion who lived out his baptismal call with spiritual intensity and pastoral charity. Canonized in 1622 along with St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Francis Xavier and St. Teresa of Avila, he is celebrated on May 26. Too often forgotten by the Church today, the example of this saint is relevant and inspiring for our times.
