St. Jean-Baptiste Marie Vianney, Curé d’Ars

“My dear brethren, I call that man bad company who is without religion, who does not concern himself with either the commandments of God or those of the Church, who does not recognize Lent or Easter, who seldom comes to church or, if he does come, then only to scandalize others by his irreligious ways. You ought to shun his company; otherwise you will not be long in becoming like him without your even noticing it.” (St. Jean-Baptiste Marie Vianney, Curé d’Ars, The Sermons of the Curé of Are: Bad Company)

The Memorial of St. John Mary Vianney, Priest (1786 – 1859) is August 4.
