 Our Description

St. John Vianney

Composed when he was a young priest, The Sermons of the Cure of Ars constitutes one of the most powerful Saints' writings in the literature of the Church. Covering a wide range of vital moral and doctrinal issues for the average layman, St. John Vianney probes quickly, incisively and with total candor into the various sins we are prone to commit and that we might make excuses for or cover up with various rationalizations. None of this mental sleight-of-hand escapes the Cure's exposure; therefore, we see sin for what it is, human weakness for what it is, and how we need the Catholic truth to shed light on our hidden faults and God's grace through the Sacraments in order to be truly good.

Among others, St. John Vianney addresses the following topics: The Duties of Parents, Duties of the Mother, Duties of the Pregnant Woman, Annual Confessions, How Death Will Reveal Thieves, Do you Want to be Happy, The Gift of Every Day, Purity Is Not Known, Be Religious or Be Damned, The Dreadful State of the Lukewarm Soul, Lost Works, Prayer Commands All, Repairing the Wrong Done, Your Prayers Are only an Insult, It Is Necessary to be Converted, You No Longer Control Your Children, The Sewer of Hell, Bad Company, etc., etc.

No one will read this book without realizing that his own moral subterfuges have been laid bare and that he needs to address the camouflaged sins and weaknesses lying buried in his inmost heart. Though of simple education, the Cure of Ars was one of the most astute minds ever when it comes to moral issues, and the reader will soon realize why over 100,000 people journeyed to Ars every year to see first-hand this incredible Saint!

Profile
    Farm hand who in his youth taught other children their prayers and catechism. Ordained in 1815, though it took several years study as he had little education, was not a very good student, and his Latin was terrible. Assigned for a while to Ecully. In 1818 he was assigned to the parish of Ars, a tiny village near Lyons, which suffered from very lax attendance; he began visiting his parishioners, especially the sick and poor. Spent days in prayer, doing penance for his parishioners. Gifted with discernment of spirits, prophecy, hidden knowledge, and working miracles. Tormented by evil spirits, especially when he tried to get his 2-3 hours of sleep each night. Crowds came to hear him preach, and to make their reconciliation because of his reputation with penitents; by 1855 there were 20,000 pilgrims a year to Ars. Spent 40 years as the parish priest.
