From a young age, John Vianney felt called to the priesthood. But with little formal education, he struggled in his studies. John hired a tutor, worked hard and was eventually ordained a priest. In his early years, Fr. Vianney was known as a demanding cleric, but his heart was true. He was humble, cared deeply for the poor and even founded a home for orphaned and homeless girls. Fr. Vianney’s compassion became a staple of his ministry. With lines out the door, he spent as much as 16 hours a day hearing confessions.
