"When we go before the Blessed Sacrament,
let us open our heart; our good God will open His.
We shall go to Him; He will come to us;
the one to ask , the other to receive.
It will be like a breath from one to the other."
St John Vianney
France ~ 1786-1859
Universal patron of priests
FEAST DAY - August 4
"Humility is to the various virtues what the chain is to the Rosary.
Take away the chain and the beads are scattered,
remove humility and all virtues vanish."~ St John Vianney

“Without the Sacrament of Holy Orders, we would not have the Lord.
Who put Him there in that tabernacle? The priest. Who welcomed your soul
at the beginning of your life? The priest. Who feeds your soul and gives it strength
for its journey? The priest. Who will prepare it to appear before God, bathing
it one last time in the blood of Jesus Christ? The priest, always the priest.
And if this soul should happen to die
, who will raise it up, who will restore
its calm and peace? Again, the priest… After God, the priest is everything! …
Only in heaven will he fully realize what he is.” ~ St John Vianney (Cure d'Ars)
