Saint John of God

John was born in Portugal to poor parents, despite of their poverty they were very strong in faith. One day while in church he heard John of Avila preaching, he began to realize howmuch of a sinner he had become. John of Avila helped John begin a new life with God. The bishop gave him the name " John of God", due to his dramatic life change. John later began a religious order called Brothers of St John of God. Runtime : 1:50 mins
