Patron of Unemployment, New Job Seekers, Gamblers
Feast Day: August 7th
Cayetano was also known as Cayeton of Thiene, and was a Venetian born in the 15th Century. He studied law at Padua, Italy, home of Saint Anthony. Cayetano was a true thinker and sought to reform the Church. He created the Congregation of Clerks with the goal of reviving and renewing the energy of the Clergy. He was especially disturbed by people who loaned money and cheated the poor so he created a Bank based on fairness, which is now known as the Bank of Naples.
Cayetano was a true gentleman with a resounding, affable, loving spirit. He liked to play games and invoke challenges where his fellow clergy would bet prayers, rosaries, and devotional candles, all in an effort to strengthen the power of prayer. His kind heart and gentle spirit brought others great enthusiasm for their work and lives! © 2012
