Quotes from St. John Vianney, the Cure d'Ars
(In the Roman Catholic church calendar today is the feast day of St. John Vianney, commonly called the Cure d'Ars.)
"I tell you that you have less to suffer in following the cross than in serving the world and its pleasures."
"All our religion is but a false religion, and all our virtues are mere illusions and we ourselves are only hypocrites in the sight of God, if we have not that universal charity for everyone - for the good, and for the bad, for the poor and for the rich, and for all those who do us harm as much as those who do us good. "
"You cannot please both God and the world at the same time, They are utterly opposed to each other in their thoughts, their desires, and their actions."
