SC 13 St. John Francis Regis, Relicman
Today on the SaintCast we debut a new segment, “Ask the RelicMan.” We have our first Audio St. Jeopardy, as well as our first audio listener feedback responses!
An incredibly saintly man is profiled in today’s SaintCast, the patron of Kansas City, Missouri, St. John Francis Regis. He was a preacher who loved the poor, and spoke from the heart, converting thousands. A Jesuit who desired martyrdom in the Americas, he was asked to provide missions to Hugenot France in the 1600’s. He inspired many including St. John Vianney, the Cure of Ars.
Feasts this week include the Traditional Feast of Corpus Christi on Thursday in much of the world, and the Feast of St. Anthony of Padua.
