Love... above all things

Jaume Huguet

in the Eucharist
above all things in the world.”

St. John of God

Religious, Founder of Order of Hospitallers 
Patron of Hospitals, the Sick, Nurses
Motivation Scripture:  "Whatsoever you do to one of these
the least of my brothers and sisters, you do to Me."
Feast Day  - March 8

"(St John) requested those round his bed to leave him alone for a few minutes; he had lived his life alone, he would die alone. When they were gone he rose from his bed and knelt before a crucifix. The nurses entered shortly after and found him still kneeling there, his face resting on the feet of the Savior, but he was quite dead. His body remained kneeling till it was taken up to be laid out for burial. It was the eighth of March, 1550, a little after midnight. At the time of his death John was fifty-five years of age." ~ Excerpt from Saints For Sinners by Alban Goodier, S.J.
St John of God, ora pro nobis!
