Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Priestly Thursday

Ever since I read his story, St. John Vianney, Cure of Ars, I have found him to be a favorite Saint of mine, next to St.Josemaria. So I found this great book at the Catholic Information Store in D.C. on our trip last week,

The Cure of Ars: The Story of Saint John Vianney, Patron Saint of Parish Priests

I really love these books, ever since a dear friend gave us the one about St. Rose from Lima and I was so happy to see that they had one on St. John Vianney. I also found out from Jessica at Shower of Roses, that Illuminated Ink has a coloring contest for the Year of the Priest with who else but St. John Vianney!

Do you have ideas to share with us about how you are celebrating the Year of the Priest? Please share with us!
