The priest who heard up to 100,000 confessions a year from people who came from all over the world. As a boy, John Vianney’s family had to sneak to Mass in secret places, and the windows were blacked out at his First Communion because the French Revolution had made the Catholic Church illegal. He said: “We will have to answer for why we did or didn’t give [to the poor], and the poor will have to answer for what they did with what is given them.”
