Happy Feast Day of St. John Vianney

Today is the 150th anniversary of the entrance into eternal life of St. John Vianney. St. John Vianney is the patron saint of priests, so today offer a little prayer for all the priests who you have encountered in your life; the priest who baptized you, who heard your first confession, who gave you your first Holy Communion, who witnessed your marriage. And if you really want to make a priest's day, give him a call to wish him a happy feast day and thank him for saying yes to God's call to the priesthood.

Also, during this Year for Priests you can gain a plenary indulgence on this day. For more information you can click on the title to this post or here.
