(1495-1550)

John was a Spanish soldier who left that life to serve God by taking care of the poor, the sick, the dying, prostitutes, and ex-prisoners. Eventually, others joined him in this work, and the town gave him a building to use as a hospital. Once, while washing the feet of a beggar, he saw the man bathed in light and heard a voice that said: “John, all you do for the poor in my name is done for me.”
