St. John of God - March 8
Although there are a number of saintly Johns celebrated at this time of the year, St. John of God
, is a good one to know about. He was a Portuguese soldier who became a health-care worker. The global institute of the Brothers Hospitallers of Saint John of God
was founded by his followers to care for the sick, the poor, and those with mental conditions. With the name meaning "Yahweh is gracious," it's a great way to add a little extra grace to your family.
