Our Saint of the Week
 

AUGUST 4—JEAN-BAPTISTE MARIE VIANNEY (1786-1859), universally known as the “Curé of Ars,” was born in Lyon, France.  His religious calling began when he witnessed faithful priests bravely carrying out their duties during the murderous anti-Catholic persecution of the French Revolution.  He struggled to pass his seminary courses, and after ordination spent 42 years at the parish at Ars, giving countless hours each day of devoted service and prayer to his people—so much so that they refused to let him move on.  St. John Vianney is the patron saint of priests and parish clergy.
