The Feast of St. Robert Bellarmine, S.J., Cardinal and Doctor of the Church
is today. There is information on him here. One thing that is not mentioned in the online biographies: St. Robert Bellarmine was short- so short that he sometimes had to stand on a box to see over the pulpit when he preached. As someone who is 4'11", I tend to take note of saints who were, ahem, vertically challenged.
