Among the great reformers of the troubled sixteenth century, Borromeo helped to lead the movement to combat the inroads of the Protestant Reformation. He was a leading figure during the Counter-Reformation and was responsible for significant reforms in the catholic Church, including the founding of seminaries for the education of priests. He is honored as a saint in the Catholic Church.  From the library of the Mt. St. Alphonsus Seminary in Esopus, NY.
