Lancelotto Avellino was born in Castronuova, a small town in Sicily, in 1521. As a young man he was ordained a priest and sent to the University of Naples to study civil and canon law. One day a slight untruth escaped him in the defense of a client. He felt deep remorse, renounced his profession and at the age of 36, he entered the Theatine Order, taking the name of Andrew out of love for the cross.
Saint Andreweventually became the superior of the congregation and was instrumental in establishing a number of Theatine religious houses in Italy. He was so successful in converting sinners and heretics with his eloquent preaching that numerous disciples thronged around him, eager to be under his spiritual guidance. One day, when beginning the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, he suffered a stroke that resulted in his death.
He died in 1608 and was canonized in 1712.
Saint Andrew Avellino is recognized today as the patron of those who have suffered a stroke. His feast day is November 10th.
