Today is the feast day of St. John Mary Vianney, patron of priests.
Reading his bio you would think: "Sounds like so many kids I know!" He struggled with his studies, wasn't the top of his class, but what he lacked in books smarts and suave he made up for in his preaching and teaching. He was simple man with great love of God and His people.
So, today thank you parish priest for all the hard work he has done, and does to bring the kingdom of God to fulfillment.
