Book of Saints – John Berchmans

[Saint John stained glass window]Article

(Saint) (November 13) (17th century) Born in Brabant, he was received while quite young into the Society of Jesus, and sent to Rome for his studies. He died at the age of twenty-two; but his ardour in the practice of virtue and assiduity in prayer were such that he had visibly attained already to a great height of sanctity before he passed away (November 13, A.D. 1621). He was canonised by Pope Leo XIII.
