The biography from Trochu - the EXPERT in hagiography - is an excellent work too.

What can one say about a man who is more 'giant' than man? I was talking to a good priest the other day who had been deeply touched by St. John Vianney's sermons who said 'If I were to preach what John Vianney preached in his sermons - the whole parish would be scandalized!'. It's true - the Cure of Ars laid it on the line when it came to teaching and preaching the Faith in all it's glory.

As THE patron of all priests - he sets the bar quite high... but I as a layperson, deeply appreciate what he has to say. I always remember his sermon on 'the Fear of Man' in which he goes on to show how so many people fear the opinion on people rather than the will of the Good God. Christ said 'God alone is Good' and so Vianney often refers to our Lord as the 'Good God'.

If you buy this book - you will have hours of benefit from it and will be well educated in the things that really matter in life. I have no doubt that many a soul has been saved and lifted to great heights by the life and writing of John Vianney. The biography from Trochu - the EXPERT in hagiography - is an excellent work too.

~"The Sermons of the Cure of Ars"
By: St. John-Baptist Marie Vianney
Composed when he was a young priest,
"The Sermons of the Cure of Ars"
constitutes one of the most powerful Saints' writings
in the literature of the Church.
No one will read this book without
realizing that his own moral subterfuges
have been laid bare and that
he needs to address
the camouflaged sins and weaknesses
lying buried in his inmost heart.
St. John Vianney (1786-1859) barely
succeeded in becoming~~ a priest, but
from the HUMBLEST parish imaginable,
he became the "Patron Saint of
Parish Priests" everywhere.
Of humble education and
assigned to a forgotten farmers' village,
he attracted the whole world to Ars (France).
He ate one meal a day,
slept only a few hours a night,
heard confessions up to 17 hours a day,
converted thousands.
His body remains incorrupt.~

I liked the Cure of Ars Sermons, in fact more than many I have heard in the last 25 years. They speak to the person and address issues forthrightly and with sound catholic wisdom. I recommend this book to any priest, seminarian, religious or layperson.

Practical, wonderful, no-nonsense wisdom. The individual sermons are not long reads but give much for thought.

I purchased this as a Confirmation present, St John was his confirmation Saint. The great thing about this collection is that they have arranged the sermons in accordance with the liturgical calendar. So you can read a sermon based on what weekend/gospel is read that day. It is a beautiful book that will be cherished for years!
