Saint John Neumann



The 5th of January is the feast day of Saint John Nepomucene Neumann.

Saint John Neumann lived between 1811 and 1860 and was born in Bohemia which is today, the Czech Republic. He came to the United States in 1836 seeking ordination, as he had entered the seminary and the bishop fell ill and could not go ahead with the ceremony and because Bohemia at that time had many priests, the ordination was never rescheduled. He was eventually ordained in New York and he joined the Redemptorist and became a bishop. He is the first American man and American bishop to be canonised as a saint. He built many churches, schools, hospitals, and orphanages. He was known for having a strong devotion to the Holy Eucharist and which he promoted.

Dear children! Also nature extends signs of its love to you through the fruits which it gives you. Also, you, by my coming, have received an abundance of gifts and fruits. Little children, how much you have answered to my call, God knows. I am calling you - it is not late - decide for holiness and a life with God, in grace and in peace. God will bless you and give to you a hundred-fold, if you trust in Him. Thank you for having responded to my call.
