Homily 4 – Memorial of St. John Vianney

August 4th, 2009, by Fr. Shawn P. Tunink

I Saw God in a Man

When Peter sees Jesus walking on the sea, he briefly forgets all the trouble they are in on account of the storm. Instead, he is consumed with one thought; he wants to do what Jesus does. He goes out on the sea to meet Jesus, but more importantly, to be like Jesus. This is our call as Christians, to become “another Christ.” St. John Vianney, the Cure of Ars, did this so well that when someone asked a lawyer returning from Ars what he had seen there he replied, “I saw God in a man.” May we live our lives in such a way that people see Christ in us.
