St. Paul of the Cross

St Paul of the Cross-FounderSaint
St. Paul of the Cross founded the Passionist Fathers with the spiritual insight that the best way to know Jesus is through contemplating his suffering and death. This intimacy brings about a loving energy to minister to Christ in the poor and suffering throughout the world. 

St. Paul would carry a large cross around with him whenever he gave parish retreats as a reminder of Christ's suffering and death for us leading to his life-restoring resurrection.
