By Father Frederick L. Miller
Fr. Frederick Miller has led many pilgrimages for priests and seminarians to Ars, France, where he leads retreats based on the life and ministry of St. John Vianney. Based on his years of personal experience at Ars, and the impact that the holy Curé has had on men who go there to learn from his inspiring life and work, this book is the distillation of wisdom and grace that St. John Vianney has passed on to his brother priests. Through beautiful reflections focusing on many aspects of Vianney's life, we learn what it means to be a priest during difficult times as he lived out his priesthood in the aftermath of the French Revolution.
Priests and seminarians who wish to strengthen their commitment to the priesthood as well as men who are discerning the call of Christ in their lives will be inspired and encouraged by reflection on the life and vocation of the great Curé of Ars. Laymen will find in this reflection on St. John Vianney a model parish priest who will inspire all to love the priesthood and pray for the sanctification of all priests.
