Daniel Comboni, born in Limone, Italy, in 1831, knew at an early age that he would be a priest and missionary. His love was Africa, and in 1857, when God called him there, Daniel answered with all his heart and soul. St. Daniel devised a Plan to bring the Gospel to people who never heard it and to prepare Africans to evangelize their own people - a revolutionary idea for his time. His motto was to Save Africa with Africa. Named the first Bishop of Central Africa in 1877, St. Daniel continued his faithful ministry until he passed away at the age of 50. Before his death, St. Daniel founded the Comboni Missionaries and Comboni Missionary Sisters who today carry out their founder's charism across Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas. St. Daniel Comboni was canonized in 2003 and remains an inspiration to all who have a heart for mission.
