Samuel Samuel Charles Mazzuchelli was an Italian priest who came to America as a missionary in 1830. He received veneration for his incredible work of spreading God’s word, building more than 30 parishes and 20 churches in Madison, Wisconsin alone. He became ill after spending a lot of time with a sick parishioner. His mission in life was to share his faith, so it seems so appropriate that his name comes from the Hebrew “name of God” or “God has heard.” Perhaps your little Samuel, Sammy, or Sam may continue spreading God’s love through his actions, by being kind to his friends and sharing his toys!
