The Cure of Ars - Fr. Bartholomew O'Brien
In what is perhaps the most accessible account of the life of St. John Vianney, Father Bartholomew O'Brien presents the biography of St. John Vianney, now affectionately called the Cure of Ars, in a beautiful narrative form.
In his life St. John Vianney had only two years of formal education and training. He was placed in a remote and obscure country town during the time of the French Revolution and his greatest desire was for the conversion of his tiny parish.
His reputation as confessor and spiritual director spread all over France and produced countless conversions to Christ. With childlike simplicity, the Cure of Ars lived a life of austerity with intense devotion to our lady and the Eucharist. His example provides the Church with a true model for the holiness that all our priests are called to in leading Christ's flock to conversion.
