St Robert Bellarmine


One of the great saints of the Jesuit order, St Robert has also been declared a Doctor of the Church and the patron of catechists.

Robert received ordination to the priesthood in Belgium, where his sermons drew crowds of both Catholics and Protestants. In 1576 he returned to Italy, and took up an academic position addressing theological controversies. The resulting work, his Disputations, became a classic of Catholic apologetics.
