St John Maximovitch

I am a Atheist to Catholic to Orthodox convert, and was wondering if any of you fine Catholic folk know anything about St John of Shanghai/San Francisco? He reminds me of Padre Pio in many ways.

Nope. Never heard of him. Can you post up some info?

Thanks! I had heard of John the Wonderworker…didn’t know it was the same one Thanks for the info!

I saw him last week. He certainly hated us Catholics!!!

Very funny.
