Vianney

The Audience Prayed

The Audience Prayed

On August 6th, a performance of Vianney in California started with a bang. The audience was incredibly responsive – they laughed and cried right from the beginning of the show. 

On stage as the Curé of Ars, Leonardo interacts with characters on a big video screen throughout the show. That night, during the scene where John Vianney figures out that it is the devil who is attacking him, the frightening image of the devil on the screen suddenly froze. The show stopped. Leonardo ran behind the statue of Mary on the stage and waited.

Your Boys Become Our Priests--Why Not?

"You have convinced me!"

That's what one boy told Leonardo after a Vianney performance at the Quo Vadis vocation retreat in Oregon. Through the Holy Spirit and the example of St. John Vianney, that young man was sure of his call to the priesthood.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there could be a deluge of vocations from this group of boys? Why not ask God for a 100% response?

Be bold with us at Saint Luke Productions! Ask God to shower graces upon these boys and to multiply the number of vocations a hundredfold!
