St. Paul of the Cross Jewelry and Collectables
Paul (1694-1775) was the recipient of several visions that foretold his founding of a religious order dedicated to the Passion of the Christ. The Passionist Order's first institute opened in 1747, and Paul made slow but successful progress. Totally devoted to the apostolic life, he was known as a popular spiritual director and preacher before his death in 1775.
