St. Peter Celestine

St. Peter Celestine (1215-1296) had lived the life of a hermit before travelling to Rome to seek approval for a religious order he founded, the Celestines. While there, he was asked to say Mass for the Pope. He was offered ornate vestments, but chose instead to remain in his simple hermetic attire.

Near the beginning of the Mass, the saint was suspended in the air above the ground and remained in that state until the Mass was completed.
