BERNARD of CORLEONE (Blessed) (April 29) (17th century) A Capuchin lay-brother, a native of Sicily, who, having been in his youth a soldier, at the age of twenty-seven embraced the Religious life, and till his death (A.D. 1667), thirty-five years later, passed his days in the practice of severe penance, doing good to his neighbour by his example, and by his wise counsels; for the giving of which, to the many who addressed themselves to him, Almighty God bestowed special graces on the poor unlettered Saint.
