    Imposing and majestic Basilica in the heart of the village of Ars on Toronto to visit if you're in the vicinity, pilgrimage in August. Excellent bakery in front of the Basilica not to be missed!

    There was a time when I was 4, 5 or 6 times a year at Ars, for the pleasure to spend a few hours in recollection... The Holy priest with me for a long time already! Arriving at Ars on a cold morning of February 1818, the future saint there was only an almost abandoned Chapel, to the steeple beheaded by the winds of revolutionary fury. A hunch made him say: "you know, this parish: she can't contain all those who, later, to press there!" ... Indeed, had he not been warned when he was named parish priest? "There is no great love of God in this parish: you put!", he was told in Lyon...

    We have at least 2 to 3 times a year to see this magnificent Basilica and the House of the priest who are really very nice. I really recommend, it is a very beautiful village.

    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.

    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.

    Haven of peace, model place of junction between the Earth and the sky, thanks to a priest by his humility, its poverty and its availability, its transmission of the great mercy of the Lord.
