"The Parable of the Good Samaritan" (detail) by Jan Wijnants

“The Parable of the Good Samaritan” (detail) by Jan Wijnants

“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.” (St. Jean-Baptiste Marie Vianney, Cure d’Ars)


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