St. John of San Facando
June 12, 2024
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 12 of June, repeating indefinitely
Born in 1430 at San Facondo in Spain, John de Gonzalez was a canon of the cathedral of Burgos and then entered the Hermits of St. Augustine. He was distinguished for his great devotion to the sacrificed of the Mass and for his forceful preaching. His sermons dealt especially with peacemaking and concord for which he was favored by the Holy Spirit with a marvelous gift, as the Church reminds us in the Collect of today’s Mass.
