This Saint was born in 1811 in Bohemia to a devout Catholic family. From a young age, John took his studies, prayers, and self-discipline very seriously. When he was finally able to enter seminary, his greatest suffering began: many of his classmates and superiors persecuted him for his love for and faithfulness to Christ! After enduring this, his ordination was put off due to his bishop becoming ill. Without much money or a recommendation from his bishop, John went to America where German speaking priests were greatly needed. There, he was ordained and ministered as a parish priest to a vast area in rugged conditions. Several years after enduring this, he joined the Redemptorist community in Pittsburgh, PA. John's next large cross came when he was appointed Bishop of Philadelphia. During his time as bishop, he implemented the Catholic school system and increased the number of Catholic schools by over 25,000%! Unlike many Saints, Bishop Neumann experienced a sudden death via a stroke. He was canonized by Pope Paul VI in 1977. St. John Neumann, patron of Catholic education, pray for us and our families, that we may raise and be raised in the life of Christ!
