Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen  1577–1622.
Feast Day: April 24.

A lawyer disgusted with the corruption in the justice system, Fidelis gave away his worldly wealth and became a Franciscan monk. He led a group of Capuchin friars on a mission to the Protestant area of Switzerland and was martyred for his preaching. His card has the shield of the propagation of the Faith, he has a cut in his head, and he holds the sword and whirl bat with which he was martyred in one hand, martyrs’ palms in the other

      Prayer for the Feast of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen
      O God, Who didst vouchsafe to inflame the heart of blessed Fidelis with seraphic ardor and to adorn him with the palm of martyrdom and with glorious miracles in spreading the true Faith: we beseech Thee, by his merits and intercession, so to strengthen us by the might of Thy grace in faith and in charity, that we may deserve to be found faithful in Thy service even unto death. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.
