St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows was born in 1838 in Assisi, Italy. After a youth spent in society and chasing women, Our Lady led him to the Passionist Order. He devoted his life to prayer, devotion to Our Lady and contemplation of her sorrow over the suffering of Jesus. Pope Benedict XV lifted him as an example for young people. St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows is the patron saint of students and young people.
