Hang your course: let us savor the delights of the most beautiful in our days Rapids! "This visit to the homeland of the Holy curé delighted the heart. Here time has stopped. We leave behind self, anxieties and follies of the world. We enter this "cure" this "rectory", the House where once lived saint Jean Marie Vianney, and suddenly out of time to enter eternity. The kitchen reminds us the simplicity of the old life in our campaign. The visit of the House of the saint, allows us to discover are bed, a few objects of worship and especially this library, where every day this priest came to draw the source knowledge of the divine mystery that no words can describe. And then there's this piece of memory, where some effects that once belonged to the pastor of this place are exposed. Clothes, books, a few souvenir. A little further has been kept the bed, what am I saying the uncomfortable mat, burned by the fire caused by the "Pitchfork" (the devil or Satan), the saint fought with heroism. Then this is the apartment of its good with a few memories... In this sober Bresse House, reigns the silence and peace. There are more to take a few steps and enter into the holy place. There lies the Church of the Holy priest with this Basilica Napoleon III came replaced the chorus. On the right, in a hunt, rests the body of the priest become the patron saint of all priests in the world. Let's stop. And if we have faith: let us pray! (The visit of the "monument of the meeting', commemorating the arrival in this village of the Saint, as a new priest, is not to forget!)

Cette visite est interressante mais attention avec de jeunes enfants car le curé est dans une urne et 'on peut le voir et celà peu choquer. Visitez sa maison et son musée de cire more »This visit is interresting but be careful with young children because the priest is in an urn and ' we can see and Cel little shock. Visit his house and his wax museum
Incredible . Really fascinating to behold. A he fruit of holiness never dies it continues to grow for everyone to see. Was blessed to be here
This Basilica is not large but is very lovely to see. The paintings on the walls show the death of St. Philomena who was martyred about the age of 14 years. Also in the Basilica you will see the incorrupt body Holy Cure of Ars ( St John Vianney ) in a glass reliquary. Beside the basilica is the Chaplet ( Shrine of the Holy Cure's Heart ) that has his heart.
Amazing privilege to visit John Vianney!
The road to the Basilica Shrine of Ars was not easy. Actually, I started my journey to Basilicas Shrine of Ars started from Seoul(Korea) in Aug. 2015. When i arrived at Lyon, but still the road to this Basilica was not clear. Thanks to Google map and lady met at a Hotel, I took a train to Villefranche-sur-Saône(from Gare de Lyon Part-Dieu it took only 22min) and took taxi(only 22 euro and it took only 15 min from the Villefranche-sur-Saône station). Mass at the Basilica was overwhelming and thanks to Lord, I could have mass intention for my friend. I have intention to visit this this Basilica again. If you wanna regular bus at the Villefranche-sur-Saône station, you have to keep in mind that the bus schedule is depend on the weekdays.
Wonderful! Much peace! Feel the presence of God in each place. Beautiful testimony of St. John Mary Vianney
