Book of Saints – Clement Mary Hofbauer


CLEMENT MARY HOFBAUER (Saint) (March 15) (19th century) Born A.D. 1770 in Moravia and religiously brought up by his pious mother, he in his early manhood embraced the religious life in the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, and was the instrument chosen by Almighty God for propagating that Institute in Poland and neighbouring countries. He spared himself in nothing, so that thereby he could be of service to those in spiritual or temporal need. He died at Vienna, A.D. 1820. Pope Pius VII, then reigning, styled him “An Apostolic man, the glory of the clergy of Vienna, and a pillar of the Church.”
