Eventually, the Cure of Ars became a Secular Franciscan (as they are called today) but remained in the parish and continued to work a 20-hour day, much of which was spent hearing confessions. He lived like that until he was 73 years old. Finally, worn out and exhausted, the Cure of Ars passed away in 1859. Today, he is honored as the patron saint of parish priests. Enjoy your time with Saint John Mary Vianney and be prepared to be surprised as you journey with one of the most engaging spiritual figures of all time.
