St. John Marie Vianney, Patron of Parish Priests
On His Feast Day – August 4
Jean-Baptiste-Marie Vianney, known as John in English, was born May 8, 1786 in Dardilly, France and was baptized the same day. He was the fourth of six children born to Matthieu and Marie Vianney. He entered the world at a very unfortunate time in the history of his native France. Three years after his birth, the French Revolution broke out. The spirit of this Revolution was filled with a hatred for the Church. Many French churches were destroyed and bishops, priests and Religious Sisters were killed. Vianney
