North Canton Patch reports that tonight Walsh University, a Catholic institution, will host a drama titled Vianney, which “tells the story of St. John Vianney (1786-1859), whose life was so remarkable that Pope Benedict XVI recently recognized him as a model for priests and laity”.
The article reports:
Blackford [VP for academic projects] said the drama truly will touch the audience, in particular Walsh students, regardless of if they choose to dedicate their lives to religion or select careers in business or health.
“St. Vianney was particularly outstanding in his use of the confessional, and people came to his parish, originally serving 230 families, by the thousands,” she said. “This is an inspiring story for students and everyone. It expands the knowledge of religion.”
