Saint Joseph of Leonessa was born at Leonessa, a small town then in Umbria, now in the Lazio. It is said that from a young age he showed a remarkably religious bent of mind; he used to erect little altars and spend much time in prayer before them, and often he would gather his companions and induce them to pray with him.
