St. John Vianney, Cure d'Ars and Patron of Priests

St. John Vianney, Cure d'Ars and Patron of Priests says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“In the world today, there is no sense of sin. This is the bad fruit of a lack of knowledge between good and evil. A person in sin who dies suddenly without a chance for repentance has no chance for salvation. The fact that sins are now culturally acceptable denies the necessity of being in a state of grace in order to achieve salvation. Every priest should teach about sin from the pulpit. This is his opportunity to lead his flock along a road of sound spirituality.”

“This topic of sin and of a state of grace must never be compromised to please man. It is the priests' job to steadfastly hold his followers to the uncompromised Truth between good and evil. It is necessary also for a soul to be in a state of grace – that is without unrepentant grave sin – in order to receive the Holy Eucharist. Catholic priests have the responsibility of making this known.”
