    Because a program on John Vianney is airing this afternoon, I read about him in the book of saints and then went to the inter-net. Your site is most informative. This man helps me realize I do not sacrifice enough and that I should pray more. Bless you.

    St John Marie Vianney is my favorite saint because of his simplicity, humility and unwavering love for God and his fellow men. His aim was to save souls, that's was why he spent so much time-16 hours per day, hearing confessions.
    Please pray for us, dear Saint.

    Dear St. John maria Vianney,
    You are still fresh in our minds, since we celebrated the 150th year of your eternal entry into heaven as the Holy year of priests. Please pray for us to lead a good life pleasing to God!

    He was a simple man like you and me but rich in the sight of God because of his patience, martification and acts of love and mercy. He showed a great heart felt devotion towards the sacraments of reconciliation i.e. ‘Confession". He had the technique to save the sinners and win over people for Christ with his common sense and natural virtues. Those who study more lack some times the humility and patience. I teach in the seminary the Christian virtues found in the saints. We need to learn that first. He was good listener.Church is not only a teacher but a listener. that's what i learn from the saint john mary vianny.

    St. John Vianney, patron saint of parish priests, bless and sanctify our priests, that they may be truly leaders through their holy example. Bless my little grandson, Christian Vengadesan Ruiz, give him healing of mind and body. Free him from all developmental delays...that he may learn, progress and flourish. Bless my mother, Victoria Gonzales, and protect her from all abuse and unkindness. Keep her in God's divine providence. Grant her the comfort, consolation and courage that she so rightly deserves in her old age. Help us, caregivers to know, discerne her needs. Keep her safe and sound always. St. John Vianney, pray for us. Grant us your loving indulgence and prevail upon us. May we feel your loving care.Amen
