June 7 – Saint Anthony Mary Gianelli

He was a good professor and priest and did many things that were revolutionary for his time. Antony began an economic society of women to teach girls living in poverty. It was the beginning of the Daughters of Mary. St. Antony Gianelli also founded a missionary congregation, the Missioners of St. Alphonsus Ligouri, which solved many ecclesiastical problems in his diocese by removing the less edifying priests and sending the best parish priests.
