Saint of the Day April 26: Rafael Arnaiz Baron

Rafael was consecrated by his father to the Virgin of Pilar. The disease didn’t give him a break but he didn’t let himself be won and returned to the monastery

When he seemed healed, the disease returned and was worse than before, but the resolution and determination of Raffaele’s soul never faded.

He became a Trappist religious and therefore had left the longed-for university studies.

Here is some biographical information.

Who was Rafael Arnaiz Baron

His ancestry was Spanish and he was born to wealthy parents in 1911.

He was a lively boy, full of interests and passions, including music, drawing, theatre.

Raffaele, although in poor health, never neglected the spiritual life and indeed is today considered one of the greatest mystics of the twentieth century.

He is the example of our century for young people together with Blessed Carlo Acutis.

Little by little, San Rafael canceled all his wishes, wanting to be last in everything, except to obey.

He died at the age of only 27 as an oblate, without being able to pronounce religious vows, of the Trappist family of S. Isidoro.

A mystic of strict observance brother Rafael

To this day we still consider his spiritual writings all over the world.

Nothing must be enough for me, this is the motto for not surrendering to simplicity.

And for all this to be possible it is only by the miracle of his grace.

In 1938 he left his mortal remains to join God.

May this Saint with such an intense contemplative and mystical life intercede for all of us.
