Saint Peter Damian - Bishop
Saint Peter Damian, lost both his parents at an early age. His eldest brother, to whose hands he was left, treated him so cruelly that another brother, a priest, moved by his piteous state, sent him to the University of Parma, where he acquired great distinction. Seven Popes in succession made him their constant adviser, and he was finally created Cardinal Bishop of Ostia.
