Today’s Devotional: Our Lady of Monte Senario
It is in 1233 in the city of Florence, Italy that a group of men (who became Hermits) retired from the world to live a life of prayer and devotion, fully focusing on our Lady; they began a group called the Seven Holy Founders. It was in 1240 that Our Lady of Monte Senario presented them with the habit of their new order. An angel stood nearby and read the scroll:
From that day forth, they have been called the Order of Servants of Mary. They take special honor in The Seven Sorrows of Mary. The names of the Seven Holy Founders are Saint Alexis Falconieri, Saint Bartholomew degli Amidei, Saint Benedict dell’Antella, Saint Buonfiglio Monaldi, Saint Gherardino Sostegni, Saint Hugh dei Lippi-Uguccioni, and Saint John Buonagiunta Monetti.
