Michael de Sanctis (DE LOS SANTOS), Saint, b. at Vich in Catalonia, September 29, 1591; d. at Valladolid, April 10, 1625. At the age of twelve years hecame to Barcelona, and asked to be received into the monastery of the Trinitarians, in which order, after a three years' novitiate, he took vows in the monastery of St. Lambert at Saragossa, September 5, 1607. When one day a Discalced Trinitarian came to St. Lambert's to receive Holy orders, Michael felt himself drawn to this more austere congregation. After mature deliberation, and with the permission of his superior, he entered the novitiate of the Discalced Trinitarians at Madrid, and took vows at Alcala; he became priest and was twice elected superior of the monastery at Valladolid. He lived a life of prayer and great mortification, was especially devout towards the Holy Eucharist, and is said to have been rapt in ecstasy several times during Consecration. He was beatified by Pius VI, May 24, 1779 and canonized by Pius IX, June 8, 1862. His feast is celebrated on July 5. He is generally represented kneeling before an altar where the Blessed Sacrament is exposed.

"Where the bishop is, there is the community, even as where Christ is, there is the Catholic Church."
-- Ignatius of Antioch (Smyrn., viii, 2) circa A.D. 110, laid down this principle on true union with the Church, versus schism; all the more impressive because his casual use of the word "Catholic" demonstrates the widespread acceptance of the term at a very early date.
