Feast of St. John of Kanty, Priest (1390 – 1473)

“With his humility went a rare and childlike simplicity…the thoughts of his heart were revealed in his words and actions. If he suspected that someone had taken offense at speaking the truth, before going to the altar he would ask forgiveness for what was not so much his own sin as the other person’s misunderstanding…The God in his heart and the God on his lips were one and the same God.”

                                                From a Letter by Pope Clement XIII     


For Reflection: 

What about St. John’s example speaks to me the most? How do I wish to respond?
