Feast of St. John Vianney

St. John Vianney is one of our homeschool patrons.  So Happy Feast Day to us! And Happy Feast Day to our wonderful priests!  I'm delighted to share the day!  I'll let St. John Vianney speak for himself...........

♥ Christian wife! Follow in the footsteps of the ideal of all womanhood, the Blessed Mother of God; in joy and in sorrow, she will be your advocate at the throne of her Son.

♥ Only after the Last Judgment will Mary get any rest; from now until then, she is much too busy with her children.

♥ I throw myself at the foot of the Tabernacle like a dog at the foot of his Master.

♥ Upon receiving Holy Communion, the Adorable Blood of Jesus Christ really flows in our veins and His Flesh is really blended with ours.

A pure soul is like a fine pearl. As long as it is hidden in the shell, at the bottom of the sea, no one thinks of admiring it. But if you bring it into the sunshine, this pearl will shine and attract all eyes. Thus the pure soul, which is hidden from the eyes of the world, will one day shine before the Angels in the sunshine of eternity.

The pure soul is a beautiful rose, and the Three Divine Persons descend from Heaven to inhale its fragrance.
