St. Charles Borromeo came from a wealthy family. He is known for his work with the Council of Trent and reforms such as stopping the sale of indulgences and creating seminaries to educate priests. When the plague hit Milan, he used much of his wealth to feed and care for the victims.
He is the patron saint of those suffering from ulcers and intestinal issues, seminarians, bishops, spiritual directors, and apple orchards.
