St. John Vianney

“All our religion is but a false religion, and all our virtues are mere illusions and we ourselves are only hypocrites in the sight of God, if we have not that universal charity for everyone – for the good, and for the bad, for the poor and for the rich, and for all those who do us harm as much as those who do us good.” ~St. John Vianney
Almighty and merciful God, by your grace Saint John Mary Vianney was remarkable for his zeal as priest and pastor. Help us by his example and prayers to win our brethren for Christ by love, and to share with them in eternal glory. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
