St John Vianney, Cure d’Ars Books

The Cure d’Ars, St Jean-Marie-Baptiste Vianney by Abbé Francis Trochu. The best biography of the Cure D’ars, and probably one of the best saints’ lives ever. It gives full details of the incredible life of the saint, which resembled that of the Desert Fathers in its austerity, and was one of the great positive influences on Church life in the 19th century. Brings home the tremendous importance of the sacrament of confession in living a truly Catholic life. The Cure d’ars, St Jean-Marie-Baptiste Vianney  – UK & Europe

The Sermons of the Cure of Ars. As the title indicates, this book is concerned with the Sermons of the Cure D’Ars, which were such a feature of his ministry. Like Christ, he had an amazing ability to take examples from everyday day, but make them come alive for his hearers. He is now the patron saint of parish priests and still a powerful example of prayer and penance.
