16031671, Feb 28
a French Discalced Carmelite theologian and missionary. Choosing the missionary life, he studied in Paris and two years at the seminary in Rome, proceeded in February 1629 to the Holy Land and Persia, and then to Goa where he became prior of the Order convent and teacher of philosophy and theology (1631-1639). After the martyrdom of his pupil Dionysius, Philip collected evidence and set out for Rome in 1639 to introduce the cause of their beatification which, however, only terminated in 1900. He did not return to the mission, but starting in 1641 was entrusted with important offices in France, and in 1665 was elected Superior General of the Order with residence in Rome, and was three years later re-elected.
