Benedict XVI
“Saint John was convinced that Christ is the true measure of man, and so he worked with great realism and zeal to promote holiness and the reform of society.”

The pope went on to encourage priests to reflect on the teachings of the saint. 

Benedict XVI
“During this Year for Priests, may the figure of this great missionary inspire priests and laity alike to ‘start anew from Christ’ and embrace their vocation with passionate enthusiasm.”

Born in the 16th century, Saint John Leonardi set his studies in pharmacy aside to become a priest. He is known as the patron saint of pharmacists.
