The Thirty-Fourth Doctor

… is John of Avila. Not terribly well-known, especially outside of Spain.

The pope speaks:

I invite everyone to look to St. John of Avila and I commend to his intercession the bishops of Spain and those of the whole world, as well as all priests and seminarians. As they persevere in the same faith which he taught, may they model their hearts on that of Jesus Christ the good Shepherd.

I wonder if there are those pining for a similar honor for Cardinal Newman or John Paul II. Check out the full list of doctors here.
