St. Philip Benizi: Secular Servite Order

August 23 is the feast of St. Philip Benizi. He was a Servite friar who rose to the rank of Cardinal, and hid when the papal elections took place. (Guess why)? He assisted St. Juliana Falconieri in establishing the Third Order of Servites. Like other Orders, the Third Order is divided into two branches: secular and “regular”.
