 Our Description

Travel through time to the 19th century church of Ars, France, in this dramatic presentation of Vianney Speaks, performed by Leonardo Defilippis. There you will witness firsthand the inspiring sermons and intimate prayers of Saint John Vianney, that vividly illustrate the human frailty, humility and fervor of the patron saint of parish priests.

Born on the eve of the French Revolution, John Vianney witnessed the intense persecution of the Church, and the heroism of the priests who risked their lives during that era to deliver the sacraments.

Ordained a priest himself against all odds, he spent the rest of his life as the pastor of the tiny village of Ars, where, through his personal holiness and sacrifice, he converted not just the entire population of the town, but countless pilgrims from near and far. A hundred thousand people a year came to Ars just to be in the presence of a saint, to have their sins forgiven through confession, and to hear him preach.

Enter the little church at Ars and meet Saint John Vianney. Still your hearts, listen to his compelling words, and contemplate the great love he had for the souls in his care.

Vianney Speaks is a cinematic presentation of the historic sermons and prayers, including an original orchestral score.

    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.
