Also Pompilio Pirotti, a renowned teacher and preacher. Born at Montecalvo, Campania, Italy, in 1710, he joined the Piarist Fathers at Naples in 1727 and was professed the next year. He took the name Maria of St. Nicholas in religious life. After his ordination, he taught school in Apulia, Italy, and received appointment as a missioner apostolic in Emilia and Venetia. His preaching in Naples was so brilliant and troublesome to many who were in power that influential personages secured his banishment; however, the King of Naples was forced to bring him back when public indignation proved overwhelming. He died at the Piarist house at Campo, Lecce, Apulia, and was canonized in 1934.
