Michael Argemir was born in Spain on September 29, 1591. He became a Trinitarian friar in 1607 and took the name Michael of the Saints. His brief of thirty-three years was one of great love for our Lord in the Blessed Sacraments. His generous service to the poor, the unfortunate and the sick made him a compassionate priest and a faithful friend.
His ministry didn’t end with his death. After eleven days of prayer, Frances Sanz was cured through his intercession. The cancerous tumors on her lips and tongue disappeared. No scars were left. Hers was one of many such cures and was presented as one of many miracles when Pius IX canonized Michael on June 8th 1862.
We hope you will join us in our prayers to God to find a cure for cancer through the intercession of Saint Michael of the Saints.
