St. Robert Bellarmine is a special friend of those who teach children and adults the Faith as well as those who are learning the Faith. A Saint Robert rosary is the ideal gift of thanks to a beloved catechist in your parish.
Growing up in the same century as the Protestant Revolution motivated Robert Bellarmine to study the Catholic Faith even more diligently and to defend it more passionately. He was an impressive scholar, a prodigious writer, and an austere priest, even as a Cardinal. His profound writings earned him the title of Doctor of the Church.
St. Robert Bellarmine's feast day is September 17, and he is the patron saint of catechists and catechumens.
