|Saint Philip Neri, Priest,
St. Philip Neri was the founder of the Congregation of the Oratory. His original "Oratory" was a group of priests and laymen that met for prayer and discussion.
In images he usually wears a broad, pointed collar such as seen in the statue at left, from the façade of La Maddalena in Rome. He is important to this church because of his association with St. Camillo de Lellis, who lived in the attached monastery. The two are the only other saints featured in the Glory of Mary Magdalene fresco in the church.
Feast day: May 26
