From the Dominican Ordo:
Born at Fabriano at the beginning of the fifteenth century, Blessed Constantius received the Dominican habit at the age of fifteen. He was noted for his austere and prayerful life, as well as his efforts in promoting peace. As prior at Fabriano, at Perugia, and at Ascoli he labored to restore regular life. He died at Ascoli on February 24, 1481.
God of justice and truth,
you made Blessed Constantius renowned
for his unceasing prayer
and his zeal for peace.
By the hellp of his prayers
may we wwalk in the path of justice
and reach everlasting peace and glory.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
