Saint Andrew Avellino
Invoked to help people with high blood pressure and recovery from strokes and epilepsy
Feast Day: January 6th
He joined the Order of Theatines and became friends with Charles Boromeo, the saint invoked against stomach ailments. He visited Rome, studied, and settled in Naples where he instructed newcomers in the Order. Saint (to be) Charles Borromeo relied on Andrew, who had become a brilliant writer.
He is known as the patron of Sicily and over the years has also been acknowledged as a saint invoked to help people with high blood pressure and recovery from strokes and epilepsy. He died in the early 17th Century and like Saint Joseph, is also said to be invoked against sudden death. Pray for Andrew’s intercession during times of grave emergency. He will surely provide needed hope and comfort. © 2018
