Blessed James Bertoni Life History

Blessed James Bertoni was born in a poor family in 1444 AD in Faenza, Italy. He was an avid reader of the lives of the saints and came to acquire a deep understanding of the liturgy

He used to go for confession on a daily basis because of fear of offending God. After he was ordained to the priesthood he continued with his great devotion and reverence in celebrating Mass especially in contemplating the “mystery of the cross” as he beheld the consecrated Host before him.

Blessed James Bertoni served as procurator of the Servite priory of Faenza. One time, by making the sign of the cross over him three times, he healed an ill monk.

At the hour of his death, on May 25 1483 in Faenza, Italy, Father James Bertoni recited daily the Divine Office while holding a crucifix, and while in prayer he died.

Relics

His relics we re-interred in the Manfredi chapel on April 15 1594 but when the church was damaged during World War II in November 1944 his relics were re-interred at the altar of Saint Charles Borromeo in the cathedral of Faenza.
