St. John Vianney

Happy feast day of St. John Vianney. Pray for our priests and for more vocations.
If people would do for God what they do for the world, what a great number of Christians would go to Heaven!
-St. John Vianney

My little children, your hearts, are small, but prayer stretches them and makes them capable of loving God. Through prayer we receive a foretaste of heaven and something of paradise comes down upon us. Prayer never leaves us without sweetness. It is honey that flows into the souls and makes all things sweet. When we pray properly, sorrows disappear like snow before the sun.
-St. John Vianney
