Luigi Sturzo

Undated photograph. Luigi Sturzo (; 26 November 1871 – 8 August 1959) was an Italian Roman Catholic priest and prominent politician. He was known in his lifetime as a "clerical socialist" and is considered one of the fathers of the Christian democratic platform. He was also the founder of the Luigi Sturzo Institute in 1951. Sturzo was one of the founders of the Partito Popolare Italiano in 1919, but was forced into exile in 1924 with the rise of Italian fascism. In exile in London (and later New York) he published over 400 articles (published after his death under the title ''Miscellanea Londinese'') critical of fascism and later the post-war Christian Democrats.

Sturzo's cause for canonization opened on 23 March 2002 and he is titled as a Servant of God. Provided by Wikipedia
