A reproduction of the original 1901 impression. A very nice book on the outside, but its real claim to fame is the contents and inspiration on each page. Although St. John Vianney is the patron of parish priests, he is truly the saint for the average layman. The book includes sermons for the entire Church year (plus holy days and special feast days)-written over 150 years ago by this much-admired saint. (Not edited; printed exactly as the 1901 edition.) A best seller, many re-orders for friends and family. Cream paper, gold embossed, hardcover, 380 pages.

About the Author:

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.
