St John Neumann

St John Neumann was born in Bohemia and studied for the priesthood. His bishop would not allow him to be ordained because he had too many priests already, and eventually he went to the United States and was ordained in New York in 1836. He was consecrated Bishop of Philadephia in 1852 and died there in 1860. Today, 5 January, is his feast day. Stained glass from St Mary's church in Annapolis, MD.
