Happy Feast of St. John Vianney!

It is with great joy that we look forward to the Feast of St. John Vianney on August 4th.  We have been reading the book Cure d'Ars for the past several months.  The children and I have become so fond of this humble saint.  Catherine Lassagne a close friend of his described him, "M. le Cure was so small, so utterly nothing in his own eyes that the Holy Ghost loved to fill with a wonderful abundance of lights the void thus made by his selflessness."

It was said of this Saint that he always seemed to have but one thing to do, the duty of the present moment. Yet St. John Vianney was able to continually lift his heart to Our Lord even while fulfilling his duties.  He had a way of weaving prayer throughout his day.

"Prayer is a fragrant dew. The more we pray, the more we love to pray." -St. John Vainney
