Searle + The MoUntain Church SAINT PASCHAL BAYLON Paschal was born on the morning of May 7, 1540 to a humble farming family at Torre Hermosa in the King- dom of Aragon, now a province in the northeastern part of Spain. Be- ginning in his early childhood, Pas- chal was willing and ready to serve God. He was so eager for an educa- tion that, from the age of seven, he always carried a book with him when he went off to tend to this grazing sheep. He asked everyone he met to teach him the alphabet until eventually he had taught him- self to read and write. Another part of his daily routine was to instruct and evangelize the rude herdsmen he met on the way to the hillside pastures. At the age of Iwenty-fout his knowledge and reputation permitted his acceptance as a lay brother among the Reformed Franciscans in the Kingdom of Valencia, now a province on the Mediterranean Sea on the east coast of Spain. Paschars humility never allowed him to accept any higher positions in the order. His ardent love and devo- tion for the Blessed Sacrament were exceptional. Unlettered though he was, his hours spent in prayer and meditation were so uplifting he was able to explain the most obscure mysteries. He grew to be considered a master in theology and spiritual sciences. Although his devotion to the Holy Eucharist played a dominant part in his life, Paschars special love was to care for the sick and poor. Often his tears of compassion performed miracles of healing. As a model of poverty, obedience and austerity, he hoped to draw others to the pres- ence of Jesus Christ to find "the peace which the world cannot give." On the morning of Whit Sunday, May 15, 1592, Paschal died at the age of fifty-two. For the three days his body was on exhibition his coun- tenance remained radiant and a per- fumed moisture which collected on his forehead continued to flow. Armed guards employed to control the crowds permitted many people to collect the scented moisture on small cloths. After the funeral serv- ices, his body was reclothed, cov- ered with lime and his coffin sealed until a receptacle was prepared un- der the church altar as his perma- nent resting place. Eight months later he was exhumed. The crust of lime was pealed from his body, be- ginning with his nose and face, the first parts to show evidence of de- composition. His body remained in tact. Two years later he was re-ex- amined. His shroud had disinte- grated but his body contradicted corruption. Nineteen years later, fol- lowing the process of beatification, the Bishop of Sergorbe in the pres- ence of certain dignitaries, doctors, doctors, surgeons and a notary offi- .... cially re-examined the holy man's body and found it to be miraculously incorrupt. Saint Paschal Baylon was canon- ized in 1690. In 1897 Pope Leo XlII named him the patron of Eucharistic Congresses and all organizations dedicated to increasing love and devotion to the Holy Eucharist. His feast day is celebrated May 17.
