Venerating a Special Heart

DETROIT — The line stretched around both sides of the church, out the doors and through the narthex of St. John Vianney Parish in Shelby Township as scores of faithful stood for more than an hour to catch a glimpse of the very heart of a very holy priest.

Throughout the day Saturday and Sunday, people waited their turn to kneel and pray before the incorrupt heart of St. John Vianney, a 19th-century French priest who ministered in the small farming community of Ars, where he served as a humble model for the priesthood.

The saint’s heart was available to parishioners at the northern Macomb County parish on March 30 and at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit on March 31 for veneration as part of the national “Heart of a Priest” tour sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.
