Accused priest assigned to parish
After several years, he was completely exonerated and was able to return to his position at the University.
He was very popular with his students, mindful of the poor, and willing to give his life for his faith.
St. John of Kanty (also known as St. John Cantius) died on Christmas eve in 1473 in Krakow, Poland, and was canonized in 1767. His memory is celebrated on this day.
Later he would be an inspiration for another Krakow priest-professor: one who would become the great Pope John Paul II.
