June 12: Saint John of Sahagun


History

Saint John was born in Spain and educated by Benedictine monks. From a very young age, Saint John understood what God was calling him to do. He was ordained a priest when he was a young man and always fought against evil. Because he was so close to God, Saint John was even able to read people’s souls and identify the sins they committed. Once a small child fell into a well, and when Saint John prayed that the little boy would be safely returned, water filled the well from below, floating the child to the top until Saint John could reach him and take him out. 


Activity

Sometimes it’s hard to know what God wants us to do with our lives. It’s even harder to know if we don’t ask him. Today, pray to God and ask Him to show you what He has planned for your life. You might not get a clear answer today, but it’s good to start asking him every day until you do know what He wants you to do.

Saint John of Sahagun, pray for us! More reading for parents:
