John Aloysius Maguire

Archbishop of Glasgow, Scotland. Born Glasgow, 1851; died there, 1920. Ordained 1875, auxiliary bishop, 1894, and archbishop, 1902. His power of swaying a large multitude by oratory was demonstrated at the London Eucharistic Congress in 1908, when he quieted the thousands of assembled Catholics who were infuriated at the government's interference with the proposed procession of the Blessed Sacrament in the streets of Westminster.
