Saint Felix of Valois (1212)

Saint Felix of Valois, when seventy years old, along with Saint John of Matha, founded in France, in 1197, a Religious Order known as the Trinitarians.  The purpose of this Order was to take captive Christian slaves away from the Mohammedans in Spain and in North Africa.  So pleased was the Blessed Virgin Mary with this Order of Trinitarians, that when Saint Felix was dying, she appeared to him wearing the habit of his Order.  Saint Felix of Valois was eighty-five years old when he died.
