breski1 SAINT JOSAPHAT Bishop and Martyr (c. 1580 - 1623)
Born in the Ukraine about 1580, ordained about 1604, Josaphat became a monk. He was a noted theologian and preacher, and loyal to Rome.
He was made bishop of Polotz in 1617, and embarked on a thoroughgoing pastoral reform, visiting his clergy, seeing that the people were instructed and taking an interest in the liturgy.
His reforms aroused hostility, and he was murdered at Vitebsk, during a pastoral visit, in 1623.
St Josaphat pray for our Church
