Saint Gerard of Maiella was born on the 6th of April 1726 in Muro Lucano, near Potenza. He died on the 16th of February 1755 in Materdomini, near Avellino.
He was very young when he asked to be received as a laic brother in the Redemptorists.
In the monastery he continued to exercise his job as tailor, when Alphonsus de Liguori noticed him and abbreviated his novitiate.
