St. Joseph Cafasso was born in 1811 on January 15th. He was born as the third of four kids. Cafasso was born with a deformed spine which made him shorter than other kids of his age. This also affected him to have a frail constitution. He had always wanted to become a priest so he made that dream come true and he became a priest. St. Joseph Cafasso died on June 23,1860. At that point he was 49 years old. On April 9, 1948 he was declared patron for all Italian prisoners
