St. Andrew Corsini – Bishop, Confessor

St. Andrew, born at Florence of the noble Corsini family, was consecrated at birth to the Blessed Virgin. His mother dreamed she had given birth to a wolf, which, on entering into the Carmelite Church, was suddenly changed into a lamb. As a young man he fell into many sins, but led by divine grace he entered the Carmelite Order, became its head in Tuscany and later bishop of Fiesole. He was a model bishop, recognizing that the pastoral office demands not mere goodness but an eminent state of sanctity. Died 1373.
