John Colombini

John Colombini
(c. 1300–67)
   Order Founder and Philanthropist.
   John was a rich merchant in Siena, ltaly. After reading a life of Mary of egypt, he determined to change his life. First he cared for the sick and the old in his own home, but in c. 1360 he formed a society of laymen who were dedicated to philanthropy. The group was constituted as the Clerici Apostolici S. Hieronymi in 1367 by Pope Urban v, but the brothers were generally known as the Gesuati. John’s cousin Catherine founded a similar order for women known as the Sisters of the Visitation of Mary (the Jesuatesses). The Gesuati spread throughout Italy, but the order was fi- nally dissolved in the seventeenth century. John himself was beatified by Pope Gregory XIII.
