The Heart of the Cure of Ars

The incorrupt heart of St. Jean-Baptiste Vianney is coming to New York and Boston. It is hoped that veneration of this relic and meditation on the holy life of the Patron Saint of Parish Priests will precipitate an increase in local vocations.

Two things I've read in his writings that have stayed with me...

"Prayer is the inner bath of love into which the soul plunges itself."

and

"I tell you that you have less to suffer in following the Cross than in serving the world and its pleasures."
