The Cure'of Ars: The Priest Who Out-Talked the Devil
From the popular Vision Book Series of saint biographies by Ignatius Press. Jean-Marie Vianney, a farm boy born during the French Revolution, longed to become a priest. But he could not learn Latin, and it seemed as if the humble, lovable, slow-thinking Jean-Marie would never be ordained. He did at last become a priest, and such a holy one that St. Jean-Marie Vianney is invoked as the patron saint and model of parish priests everywhere. He devoted his life to the little village of Ars and so successfully led his people to sanctity that he became a prime target of the devil. Recommended for 4th grade students. 148 pp.
This title is also sold as part of the 4th Grade Vision Reader Set.
