It is 2.7 cm ( 1.10'') x 2.0 cm ( Francis Regis (Jean-François Régis) was born in Fontcouverte, (Aude)in the Languedocregion of southern France. His father, Jean Régis, had recently been ennobled as a result of service rendered during the Wars of the League. His mother, Marguerite de Cugunhan, was of a noble family.He was educated at the Jesuit College of Beziers. On 8 December 1616, in his nineteenth year, he entered the Jesuit novitiate at Toulouseand he took his vows two years later.
After finishing his course in rhetoric at Cahors, John Francis was sent to teach grammarat several colleges: Billom(1619–1622), Puy-en-Velay(1625–1627), and Auch(1627–1628). While he was teaching, he also pursued his studies in philosophyat the scholasticate at Tournon. Owing to an intense love of preaching and teaching the faith,as well as the desire to save souls, Regis began his study of theology at Toulousein 1628. Less than two years later, in 1630, he was ordained a priestat the age of thirty-one. The following year, having completed his studies, Regis made his Third Probation.
Regis was now fully prepared for his lifework and entered upon his apostolic career in the summer of 1631. As a newly ordained priest, he worked with bubonic plaguevictims in Toulouse. From May 1632, until September 1634, his headquarters was at the Jesuit College of Montpellier. Here he labored for the conversion of the Huguenots, visited hospitals, assisted the needy, withdrew from vice wayward women and girls, and preached Catholic doctrinewith tireless zeal to children and the poor.
Regis established the Confraternitiesof the Blessed Sacrament, which organized charitablecollections of money and food from the wealthy. He also established several hostels for prostitutes, and set up girls as lacemakers to give them an income.
In 1633, Regis went to the Diocese of Viviersat the invitation of the local bishop, Monsignor Louis II, giving missions throughout the diocese. From 1633 to 1640 he evangelizedmore than fifty districts in le Vivarais, le Forez, and le Velay.
Regis laboured diligently on behalf of both priests and laymen. His preaching style was said to have been simple and direct. He appealed to the uneducated peasantry and numerous conversions resulted. Although he longed to devote himself to the conversion of the Indiansin Canada, he remained in France all his life.
Regis suffered incredible hardships throughout for his apostolic journeys over rugged mountains in the depths of winter, and did not allow anything to stand in his way in the salvation of souls.
John Francis succumbed to illness during the winter of 1640, while he was contemplating the conversion of the Cévennes. He died of pneumoniaat age forty-three on 30 December 1640, at Lalouvesc(Aedèche), in France'sDauphinéregion.
John Francis Regis was beatified by Pope Clement XIon 18 May 1719, and canonized by Pope Clement XIIon 5 April 1737.
