9780819871152: Saint John Vianney

John Mary Vianney was born near Lyons, France, in 1786. He loved to pray and when he was eighteen, he asked his father’s permission to become a priest. John studied under Father Balley. The priest was very patient but Latin soon became a major problem for John. After much study, John was finally able to enter the seminary. Studies were hard. No matter how much he tried, he never did very well. When the final examinations came, they were spoken, not written. John had to face a board of teachers and answer their questions.

Because of this gift, he converted many sinners and helped people make the right decisions. St. John Vianney was proclaimed a saint in 1925 by Pope Pius XI.
