Today's Lay Saint

Today's lay saint is Bl. Bartholomew (Bartolo) Longo. You can learn some more about him over here. Now if this isn't a sign of hope for all of us -- a saint who at one point in time was both a Satanist and a lawyer (no jokes about the two being the same thing, please) -- I don't know what is.

Via email, Kairos raised a question as to why all of the lay saints have been Italian. Now, I've been selecting them somewhat at random, leaning towards more modern ones. I'd be curious if someone knows with more detail the percentage of Italian saints compared to the overall.
