Today is the Feast Day of St. John Vianney, the "Curé (French for 'curate', or parish Priest) of Ars" and the patron saint of parish Priests, who died on this day in 1859. So check out the website for the shrine of St. John Vianney in Ars, France, can be found by clicking here.
While most of Pere Vianney's exploits are legendary (battles with the devil, the conversion of the village of Ars), some others are not so lofty. Take, for example, the well known fact that St. John lived on potatoes. Heck, french fries, tater tots, hash browns, and Wise Potato Chips have been a staple of my diet for years!
Also, St. John Vianney is best known, perhaps along with St. Pio of Pietrelcina, as "saints of the confessional". It was said that Vianney spent between 16 and 18 hours a day hearing the confessions of an unending line of Catholics who came to pour out their sins to him. That may have been his first miracle; not the hours spent in the confessional, but the fact that there were that many Catholics who actually wanted to go to confession!
I'm just kidding; it's my feast day!
