John Marie Vianney, who was to be the honor of the secular clergy of France, was born in the very heart of the diocese of Lyons. This diocese was destined to provide France with more apostles and more charitables works during the nineteenth century than any other. John belonged tot he agricultural class, from which our best priests have always been recruited. An example of his sage advice can be seen. He told a man not to go to La Trappe, a Trappist monastery. The man objected: “But, Father, I am quite certain; my best inspirations lead me thither; I thirst for mortifications and austerities.” The Cure replied: “My child, do not go there.” The young man went home, prayed and reflected once more, and persuading himself that he saw more clearly than the holy Cure, went to Aiguebelle. He was accepted and began his novitiate. He found the Rule easy to follow and was a model of regularity. However, shortly before his profession he suddenly abandoned the monk's habit and has never been heard of since.
