If you haven’t read up on St. John Vianney, I encourage you to amble down to the Catholic book store and grab a book on this most holy priest. Like most Saints he was a humble man who was very vocal about owing all his talents to God. He reminds us of Padre Pio because of his ability to read souls in the confessional. He had the amazing ability to mind the one confessing about long forgotten sins.
Here is a great article on the Cure’ of Ars:
And here is a great quote from the great Saint:
“When people want to destroy religion they begin by attacking the priest; for when there is no priest, there is no sacrifice: and when there is no sacrifice, there is no religion.”
— St. John Vianney
Pray for more holy priests! God knows we need them!
