St. John Mary Vianney — Confessor August 9

In imitation of his Divine Master this holy priest preached the Gospel of the Kingdom of Christ and cured every sickness and infirmity. His word shone like a torch and his words cured souls as well as bodies. Crowds flocked to the holy priest.

He hath sent me to preach the Gospel to the poor, to heal the contrite of heart. I became all things to all men, that I might save all. — Gradual

The Imitation of Christ
My son, hear My words, words most sweet, excelling all the learning of philosophers, and of the wise men of this world. My words are spirit and life, and not to be estimated according to human perception.
