S. Nicolas of Tolentino, O.S.A., circa 1246-1306. was born of
gentlefolk, Compagnonus de Guarutti and Amata de Guidiani, pious and devout,
living in great seclusion on very moderate means. He was the child of prayer,
his mother being advanced in years and vowing her son, should she bare one,
to God from the womb. His parents joyfully consented to his joining the
Order of Augustinian Hermits, of which he is one of the greatest glories.
S. Nicolas was distinguished by angelic meekness and celestial purity. He
died 10 September, and his feast is celebrated on that day.
