(These are days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed but his own. --G.K. Chesterton)
The Cure of Ars is one of the more touching saints. He was the Padre Pio of his day. France could use another Cure of Ars. In the Eastern Church they have a class of saint called a Fool for Christ. The Cure wasn't exactly a "fool" but wasn't an intellectual held in high esteem by his contemporaries.
