Saint’s Biography

Saint Bernard of Corleone was born as Filippo Latino on February 6, 1605, in Corleone, Palermo, Sicily. He was the third of six children of Leonardo and Francesca Latini. The family lived in modest conditions, but they never lacked the necessity. Bernard was a Shoemaker and the best swordsman in Sicily. In 1632, he fatally wounded a man (Canino) in a duel and was forced to flee from the police. Bernard sought refuge in the Capuchin church of Palermo and stayed becoming a lay brother. He changed his name to Brother Bernardo. In the remaining thirty-five years of his life, he grew into a gifted and exemplary monk. Bernardo died on January 12, 1667, 62 years old.
