More About Burns & Oates Co
St. Jean-Marie Vianney was born in 1786 at Dardilly, France. After being drafted, leaving the army, and opening a school for village schoolchildren, he joined the minor seminary of Verrieres in 1812 and was ordained a priest three years afterward. While famously serving as cure of the town of Ars, he saw to it that his parishioners understood their evil pastimes, spending long hours in the confessional at a time. St. Vianney died at Ars-sur-Formans, France, in 1859, and was declared a saint by Pope Pius XI in 1925. His feast day is celebrated on the fourth of August.

A little heaven in a little book. Oct 5, 2007
This book, as small as it is, contains many profound spiritual insights. Comprised of short quotes from his sermons and catechetical instruction, this book gives you a peek into the holiness and love of St. John Vianney, the Cure of Ars. In my opinion, this is one of the most inspiring little books that TAN has published. Although seminarians and priests will benefit the most from the thoughts of the "patron of parish priests," anyone seeking to grow closer the Lord will also find much nourishment.
Inspiring thoughts for meditation! Apr 13, 2006
This is one of the most simple and beautiful books you will ever find. It is not a story, but instead it is a collection of quotations from St. John Vianney. Every one of them has something for us to learn from. Also, each quotation will tell you what book it's from (or sermon etc..). Therefore, if you find a number of quotes that have helped you, then you may be able to find that book somewhere on the Internet. My only complaint is that there is not really any organization in the book,(e.g. splitting one section on purity or faith or whatever). But, that is not enough to take away from this book! It should be beneficial to anyone to meditate on the different words the great preacher from Ars spoke!!!
