Saint John Neumann


The 5th of January is the feast day of Saint John Nepomucene Neumann CSsR (March 28, 1811 – January 5, 1860).

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.

March 18, 2019 Message to Mirjana

My children, as a mother, as the Queen of Peace, I am calling you to accept my Son so that He can grant you peace of soul - that He can grant you that which is just, which is good for you. My children, my Son knows you. He lived the life of man, and at the same time of God: a wondrous life-human flesh, divine Spirit. Therefore, my children, while my Son is looking at you with His eyes of God, He penetrates into your hearts. His tender, warm eyes are looking for Himself in your heart. My children, can He find Himself [there]? Accept Him, and then the moments of pain and suffering will become moments of tenderness. Accept Him, and you will have peace in [your] soul - you will spread it to all those around you - and this is what you now need the most. Heed me, my children. Pray for the shepherds, for those whose hands my Son has blessed. Thank you.
