It is only by sacrifice and suffering, offered as penance, that you will be able, by the grace of God, to convert sinners.
—  St. Jean Vianney, the Curé of Ars
Upon receiving Holy Communion, the Adorable Blood of Jesus Christ really flows in our veins and His flesh is really blended with ours.
—  St. Jean Vianney, the Cure of Ars
The greater sinners we are, the more tenderness and compassion Mary has for us. The child who has cost the Mother the most tears is closest to her heart.
—  St Jean Vianney, the Curé of Ars
Humility is to the various virtues what the chain is in a rosary. Take away the chain and the beads are scattered; remove humility and all virtues vanish.
—  St. Jean Vianney, the Cure of Ars.
Ah, how consoling for a Christian is the blessed thought that God sees him, that God witnesses his sorrows and his troubles, that God is by his side! Ah, what is still better, that God presses him tenderly to His heart!
—  St. Jean Vianney, the Curé of Ars
