Wednesday, March 02, 2011 by Fr. Santo Arrigo C.Ss.R.

March 15, 2011 marks the 260th Birthday of St. Clement

St. Clement was born on the feast of Saint Stephen, December 26, 1751, in Tasswitz, Moravia. He was the ninth of twelve children born to Mary and Paul Hofbauer. Baptized the very next day, he was given the name of Hansl, or John. He would be known that way for more than twenty years until he entered a hermitage and took the name of Clement.
