The Feast of St. John Vianney

Today is the feast of St. John Vianney - the Cure of Ars. There have been several great posts today that discuss the virtues of this saintly priest, and do it much better than I ever could so visit: Esther at A Catholic Mom in Hawaii, Father Jay Toborowsky at Young Fogeys and Barbara at Praying for Grace.

St. John Vianney holds a special place in my heart, even if I can't expound on his life as well as some others can because he was the patron saint of my high school. So, when some hear St. John Vianney, they think of a French priest shortly after the revolution, I think of high school days. Football games (Go Lancers!), school plays, and most of all the wonderful friends I made there - that are my friends still.

St. John Vianney - pray for us.
