A beautiful new children’s book on the patron saint of all Catholic priests . . .

Ignatius Press, 2010. 36 pages, $14.99 hardcover

Earlier this year, the Pope named St. John Vianney the patron saint of all priests. The saint’s simple way of life, his compassion for the poor, his long hours in the confessional, and his heartfelt celebration of the Mass endeared him to all. This story recalls how Vianney heard his calling to the priesthood when he attended underground Masses during the French Revolution. The future saint struggled in school, yet persevered in his studies until his dream to be a priest was realized.
