30 French Bishops take Penitential Retreat to Ars, France

As part of the celebrations during the Year for Priests, 30 French bishops, including two cardinals, participated in a pilgrimage to Ars on Sunday, February 14. These photos are from the official website for the Shrine of St. John Vianney. Among the posted photos we notice the blessing of a brand new bronze statue of the saint that was installed near his famous rectory. The pilgrimage took place amidst the annual celebrations surrounding the Cure of Ars’ entrance into the town to take up his new assignment in 1818
