St. Jean Vianney shows priests how to reach modern society, Pope teaches

Castel Gandolfo, Italy, Aug 5, 2009 / 10:26 am (CNA).- In his first general audience at Castel Gandolfo this summer, Pope Benedict XVI reaffirmed the example of St. Jean Marie Vianney, who provides priests with an example of how to minister in a culture under the influence of moral relativism.

The Holy Father began by noting that yesterday the Church celebrated the 150th anniversary of his “birth into Heaven.”

He then spoke about the childhood of the CurĂ© d’Ars, his illiteracy as a child and his struggles with his seminary studies
