In 1564, in an atmosphere of deep spiritual renewal, the Florentines in Rome wanted for their parish community a priest and fellow citizen recognised in Rome for the sanctity of his way of life and fervour of his apostolate. So Pope Pius IV entrusted Filippo Neri with the safekeeping of the church of the Florentine nation. Filippo had just recovered from a serious illness, which had raised fears for his life. He reluctantly accepted, however a parish apostolate did not suit his spirit or the type vocation to which he aspired. Inclined by nature and spiritual approach to put his trust in the Holy Spirit, Filippo sent young people from the Oratory who were already ordained as priests to the rectorate of the church; Cesare Baronio, Giovanni Francesco Bordini and Alessandro Fedeli.
