Peregrine Laziosi was born in Forli, a small city in Italy in 1260 and strived after a career in politics. During an uprising in which the Pope has sent St. Philip to negotiate with Peregrine Laziosi, the latter struck Philipp in the face. Surprisingly, Philipp, instead of starting a fight, offered him the second cheek. This action impressed Peregrine so much that he was instantly converted to Catholicism. Later on, he had a vision and joined the Servites in Siena, then moved back to Forli. When he got cancer and the doctors decided to take off his leg , he spent the night before the operation in prayer. The next day, he was miraculously healed.
