However, he persevered and after some private tutoring, was reaccepted and ordained in 1815. People soon noticed that he prayed with great recollection and celebrated Mass with deep devotion. Very soon, the Cur of Ars had won the hearts of all. Focus your life on the mercy of the Lord The reputation of Saint John Mary Vianney blossomed, and soon penitents by the thousands came from all over France to attend his Mass. Eventually, the Cur of Ars became a Secular Franciscan (as they are called today) but remained in the parish and continued to work a 20hour day, much of which was spent hearing confessions. He lived like that until he was 73 years old. Finally, worn out and exhausted, the Cur of Ars passed away in 1859. Today, he is honored as the patron saint of parish priests. Enjoy your time with Saint John Mary Vianney and be prepared to be surprised as you journey with one of the most engaging spiritual figures of all time.
