On August 4, St. John Mary Vianney is the patron saint of priests. He was born on May 8, 1786, in Dardilly, near Lyon. His name means “Holy Cure of Ars” in French. In 1815, he was ordained a priest and sent to an isolated community near Ars. There, he began working on his conversion of his parishioners. He was a poor farmer and saw himself as unworthy of his mission, but his love for God filled him with hope.
During the French Revolution, he and his family were forced to hide and evade the revolution. When he was finally drafted, the French government ordered him to be a priest. This was a life-saving decision, as he would not have been able to survive the Revolution without the support of the Church. The emperor wanted a new King, and the people of France needed soldiers to fight Spain.
