The Saint of the Day for December 3 is is St John of Kanty
St John of Kanty was a university professor who was unjustly fired from his job due to the rivalry and enmity of his fellow professors
He was assigned to a rural parish where the people were very cold and indifferent. After eight years, they warmed up to him, and when he was exonerated, they followed him down the road begging him to stay.
He spent the rest of his life teaching Scripture at the University of Krakow.
He was known for his humility and generosity. He championed the motto: "Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause."
