Saint John Vianney - The Cure of Ars: Patron of Parish Priests
Bob Lord, Penny Lord
We trace the life of Saint John Vianney the Cure of Ars - little hamlet of Ars in France, where this Super Saint, known as a Saint of the Eucharist, and perfect confessor.
Discover his church in Ars and venerate his incorrupt body; discover his confessional, the rectory he lived in, his bed the devil set afire, the Shrine to his incorrupt heart, and the altar where Our Lady appeared to him, and where he was healed through the intercession of St. Philomena.
We share about the school and orphanage he founded.
Relive with us the difficulty he had becoming a priest, and the struggle to turn the little town of Ars into a religious town, by closing down four taverns and focusing the people on the one Church. Learn about the many people who came from all over France, including royalty and princes of the Church, to have him hear their confessions and give them absolution.
