He spent his early years as an assistant pharmacist. He was ordained a priest in 1572 dedicating himself to the Christian formation of young people in his parish. He also became very active in ministering to those in hospitals and prisons. John became interested in the reforms proposed by the Council of Trent, and pro- posed a new congregation of diocesan priests. In 1574, he founded the Clerks Regular of the Mother of God, a community charged to deepen faith and devotion; this foundation occurred as part of the move- ment known as the Counter-Reformation. Fa- ther Leonardi worked with this community to spread devotion to the Blessed Vir- gin Mary, devotion to the Forty Hours, and frequent reception of the Holy Eucha- rist. Father Leonardi's work attracted the support of Pope Clement VIII, who in 1595 officially approved His con- gregation. John Leonardi took his work to Rome where he be- came friends with St. Philip Neri. Famous for his kind- ness, Neri not only gave him BANQUET HALL CELEBRATING 20 YEARS 1994 - 2014 THANKS TO OUR LOYAL CUSTOMERS For over the the past 20 years Spinelli's Banquet Hall has had the pleasure to serve our customers and help them celebrate Wedding Receptions, Quinceniera, Showers, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Meetings.

Neri held him in high regard for his qualities of firmness and judgment and entrusted him to delicate works, such as the reform of the Benedictine congregation of MonteVergine. In 1603, John co-founded the seminary of the Prop- agation of the Faith. He passed away in Rome on Oc- tober 9, 1609, after contract- ing influenza while nursing victims of the epidemic, which raged in Rome at the time. The final Rule of his com- munity was published in 1851. Two houses of the Clerks of the Mother of God were opened when he died; three others were opened during the seventeenth century. Father Leonardi was beatified in 1861 and canonized in 1938. St John Leonardi's feast day is cel- ebrated on October 9 . Saint John Leonardi is the Patron Saint of pharmacists.
