Saint Egidio Maria of Saint Joseph was an Italian professed religious of the Order of Friars Minor. He became a Franciscan brother rather than an ordained priest due to his lack of a proper education and so dedicated himself to the care of the poor and ill in southern Italian cities such as Taranto and Naples where he earned the moniker of the "Consoler of Naples"
