    it's my birthday and its your death anniversary. i'm coming to mother earth and ur going home to God. i dont really know u but i believe what was written about you. i wish you could ask God to give me also the gift of knowledge or anything that's all about wisdom and learning. never mind about art, i dont know how to draw but i can mold peoples mind through learning and wisdom. how i wish my request be granted. and of course to live a life full of humility and love. thank you St. Charles and please try to ask God to make me an instrument of his LOVE and PEACE.

    Dear St. Borromeo,
    Humility is the greatest virtue that made you a saint, which I sadly lack! Pray for me to be more humble and please the Lord, as you did.

    St. Charles, as patron of catechists, please pray for me as I teach my 5th grade class. Help me to show them the love of God, and lead them to love and want more knowledge and closeness to Our Loving Lord and His Church.

    Very important and impressive saint. I seen his life and such on EWTN with the Lords the evening of NOV 3 and this account really ties in. A very special saint as he did so mcuh starting at a very early age. From the TV show he was also instrumental in the Catholic presence at the same time that Lutherism was growing adn drawing away from the catholic Church. Thank You

    A date of birth would have been helpful. In addition, the writer would benefit from a serious course on punctuation. There should be no comma, for instance, between "...reform of the Church..." and "...of the evils and abuses...". If a comma is used here, then the statement after it must be re-phrased. This is not the only example.

    This was very helpful. We are writing reports in school and I chose St. Charles Borromeo. My mom visited his family's castle on Lake Maggiorie in Italy and I attend a Catholic school named after him.
