Year of Faith

Today we share the third installment of our Year of Faith feature where each month, I highlight a saint that has been listed on the USCCB Saints for the Year of Faith. The month of December is dedicated to St John Neumann. He was born on Good Friday March 28, 1811, in Bohemia. It is today known as the Czech Republic. He went to America where he was ordained in New York. He became the Bishop of Philadelphia where he established the Diocesan School System. He was so hardworking that at the age of 48 he collapsed on the streets of Philadelphia and died. He was buried in the crypt of St Peters Church in Philadelphia. Now pilgrims come from all over the world to visit his shrine. In 1977 he was canonized as a saint.

Today we will be making Sautéed Red Cabbage.
