It is said that St. John is a martyr of the confessional secret. The king allegedly questioned him about the sins of his wife, Sophia, who was very religious. She went to John to confess. The king suspected her of infidelity because he himself had committed this vice. However, since John did not reveal anything, he tortured him and finally had him killed. This tradition is confirmed by the fact that the language of St. Ján Nepomucký remained intact. John was declared a saint in 1729.
