Life Story of St. Paschal Baylon

St. Paschal of Baylon was born in to a lower class family in Aragon. Paschal was a shepherd for his father and also performed miracles. No one was able to teach Paschal how to read, so he taught himself. In 1564, Paschal became a Franciscan lay brother of the Alcatrine. During his time as a brother, he spent most of his time as a doorkeeper. St. Paschal practiced fasting and showed deep compassion for the Blessed Sacrament. During a journey to France he encountered a Calvinist preacher and defended the doctrine of Real Presence. Paschal died at a monastery in Villarreal and was canonized in 1690.
