Video #12: August 4, 2019: Who is St. John Vianney?
“Show me the way to Ars, and I'll show you the way to heaven.”
St. John Vianney, a French priest in the town of Ars, achieves his childhood dream of becoming a priest in the early 1800s. Although not academically gifted, St. John had the gift of reading hearts and was a tremendous confessor to thousands of penitents. Spending countless hours in the confessional, St. John was affectionately known as the Curè d’Ars.
