Saint Nicholas of Tolentino, the first Augustinian to be canonized, was born in Italy to pious parents. At 18, he became a monk and at 25, an Augustinian priest. St. Nicholas was known for his preaching, administering the sacraments, ministering to the poor and criminal and his great devotion and prayers for the souls in purgatory. His first Mass was said with such fervor that his heart shown with a glow of a fire. A vegetarian, Nicholas was once served roasted fowl, he blessed it and it flew out the window. Nine passengers on a ship going down at sea once asked his aid and he appeared in the sky and quelled the storm with his right hand. He had the reputation as a mystic, wonder-worker, and healer, even raising the dead and was credited with 300 miracles as his canonization.
