St. John of God:  Patron of Nurses and Other Hospital WorkersWHILE SUPPLIES LAST
WHILE THEY LAST!

St. John of God (1495-1550) spent his youth as a shepherd, was a mercenary and debauchee, and then went through a brief period of insanity. In his 40s, he had a vision of the Infant Jesus, who called him John of God. To make up for the suffering he d caused as a soldier, he rented a house in Grenada, Spain, and began to care for the sick and the poor. He gave away all that he had to the indigent and went so far as to carry, like Mother Teresa, the ill from the streets into his home, treating them with infinite care and respect. John founded the Order of Hospitallers. For these reasons he is the patron of nurses, the sick, especially heart patients, and all hospital workers.
