St. Peter Damian

St. Peter Damian was born in Italy in 1007. He left his career as a professor to become a Benedictine monk. St. Peter Damian’s health suffered when he tried to replace sleep with prayer. The Vatican called on him to help make peace among clergymen. In 1828 he was declared a doctor of the church.
