St. Daniel Comboni, 1831-1881
This divine Heart bore the wound of the enemy’s lance, in order to pour forth from that sacred wound the sacraments through which the Church was founded. This Heart has never ceased to love men, and continues to live on our altars, a prisoner of love and a victim of propitiation for the whole world. Daniel Comboni
The Italian founder of the Comboni Family, with several Institutes and Congregation to help Africa. The Comboni Family continue their work today with priests, brothers and sisters ministering in hospitals, schools, and orphanages in 41 countries.

O Father, through the spirt of sacrifice and the heroic love of the Cross that burned in the heart of Saint Daniel Comboni, Have Mercy On Us. Glory Be to The Father …..
O Father, through the ardent zeal for the poorest and most abandoned souls that inflamed the heart of Saint Daniel Comboni, Have Mercy On Us. Glory Be to The Father ….
Through the merits and intercession of Saint Daniel Comboni, who spent his entire life seeking your glory and the spreading of your Kingdom among the peoples of Africa, grant me, O Father, the grace for which I now pray …….(silent prayer). You who live and reign for ever and ever. Amen
