True Wisdom

and Love

SAINT ROBERT BELLARMINE SJ

(1542-1621)

 

This season's featured words from our saints are excerpted from The Ascent of the Mind to God by the Ladder of Created Things, a devotional text by Cardinal Robert Bellarmine. Born in Montepulciano in Italy, Bellarmine began his career as a theology professor at Leuven in the Low Countries and then taught for many years at the Jesuits' Roman College, today the Pontifical Gregorian University. He was made a cardinal by Pope Clement VIII. He is known especially for his explications of Catholic doctrine in view of Protestant Reformation challenges, but he also wrote a number of devotional works. He was canonized on June 29, 1930, by Pope Pius XI and declared a Doctor of the Church. He is the patron saint of canon lawyers, catechists, and several colleges and universities.
