Luigi Orione was born in Pontecurone, a small village in the region of Piedmont, into a very humble family, in 1872. He grew up according to the rules of the Christian religion and, just over twenty years old, he started to develop a vocation to charity. In 1893 he opened his first oratory in Tortona to provide for the Christian training of young boys.
Thus began the Little Work of Divine Providence, the Order founded by Don Orione, which practiced the works of mercy for the moral and material well-being of the abandoned and poor young people throughout the world thanks to God’s help and Don Orione’s love with no boundary.
Don Luigi Orione died in Sanremo, in 1940. On October 26th, 1980, he was beatified by Pope John Paul II. On May 26th, 2004, he was canonized by that same Pope.
