December 23 - Saint John Kanty
The son of a poor Polish family, John was very intelligent and successful in his studies. He became a teacher and preacher, which seemed to arouse the jealousy of some people who plotted against him until he was sent to a small parish. In the parish, despite some initial difficulties, John was equally successful. His main qualities were humility and love for the poor, to whom he gave everything he had, including his own food and clothing.
Where is your heart? Are you distracted with your own success from what is really essential?
