Blessed Calimerius of Montechiaro

Today is the memorial of Bl. Calimerius of Montechiaro. I do not have any information about him in any of my current sources at hand. The following very short profile comes directly from the entry for him at the wonderful Patron Saint Index :

Blessed Calimerius of Montechiaro was born c. 1430 in Italy. He was a Dominican. He spent a long life preaching throughout Italy. When he was 90 years old and unable to climb into the pulpit, parishioners lifted him into it so he could preach. He died 1521 of natural causes.
