St. Bernardino was born in Massa Marittina (Italy) and was mainly a priest, preacher and a Franciscan missionary. He is often called "the Apostle of Italy" for his great influence on the rebirth of Italy's faith during the 15th century. The main topics of his preaching were gambling, homosexuality and usury. St. Bernardino died in 1444 in Aquila (Italy) and was canonized by Pope Nicholas V in 1450.
