St. John of God

John's beginnings
John's hospital and impulsive love

John of God is patron saint of booksellers, printers, heart patients, hospitals, nurses, the sick, and firefighters and is considered the founder of the Brothers Hospitallers.

His prayer: Saint John of God, help us to act out of love as soon as we feel the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Help us learn to fight the little voices in our heads and hearts that give us all sorts of practical reasons to wait or delay in our service of God. Amen

His feast day is March 8th

John was known for his impulsiveness. We can learn from him that logic is no reason to not do God's will. If we allow unquestionable love to fill our hearts than we can be better Christians.
