Long Description:
Statue of Saint John Sarkander near Petrohrad, the thirteenth one on Czech Saints Sculpture Trail.

Saint John (Jan) Sarkander (20 December 1576 – 17 March 1620) was a Silesian Roman Catholic priest. Sarkander was married for a short period of time before he became widowed and pursued a path to the priesthood where he became active in the defense of the faith during a period of anti-Catholic sentiment and conflict. He himself was arrested on false accusations as a means of silencing him and he refused to give in to his tormenters who tortured him for around a month before he died.

Pope Pius IX beatified Sarkander at Saint Peter's Basilica in 1860 and Pope John Paul II canonized him as a saint in 1995 on his visit to the Czech Republic.
