Seminary pilgrimage to heart of St. John Vianney in DC Shrine Basilica

Seminary Dillwyn

St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary made a pilgrimage into our nation’s capital to venerate the heart that burned so fervently in the Cure of Ars.

Not only is St. John Vianney a special patron of ours as a priestly society, but the incorrupt heart of this great saint is a testament to the instrumentality of priests who are truly fathers. Today’s crisis of authority and paternity finds its cure in good and holy priests whose hearts burn with apostolic zeal and a true love for souls; hearts that beat in time with the heart of the priest par excellence, the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
