Seven Founders of the Order of Servites

Holy Founders of Servites, pray for us.

Holy Founders of Servites, pray for us.

Seven men, born at Florence, began a life on Monte Senario with a particular veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Later they preached throughout Tuscany and founded the Order of Servites of the Blessed Virgin Mary, approved by the Holy See in 1304. Alexis Falconieri, one of the seven, died on this day in 1310.

Prayer

Lord, fill us with the love which inspired the seven holy brothers to honor the Mother of God with special devotion and to lead your people to you. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
