The Beggar Saint

Benedict Joseph Labre was known as the “beggar saint of Rome.” Normally, his face was said to have a colorless hue. When he prayed before the tabernacle, however, he lost all sense of everyone around him and his face glowed with a rosy hue. This was seen to last for the five or six hours that he frequently spent in such prayer.
