This first HD photo shows a statue depicting Saint Jean Marie Vianney who was a Parish Priest in the Ars area of France, and at the bottom of the statue on the pedestal there is an inscription that reads Le saint cure d'ars heros du sacerdoce, which in English translates to The holy priest of ars heroes of the priesthood.
With a full name of Jean Baptiste Marie Vianney, yet commonly known in English as John Vianney, he was born in 1786 and becoming a Catholic Parish Priest helping many people regain a faith after the French Revolution, over time he became recognised internationally, spending anything between 12 and 16 hours a day in confessional for the many travellers that came to see him, and at his funeral in 1859 there were around 300 priests and over 6,000 people in attendance.
It was then on 3rd October 1874 Pope Pius IX proclaimed him venerable, and on 8th January 1905 Pope Pius X declared him Blessed, which was followed by his canonization in 1925 by Pope Pius XI.
Then in 1929 John Vianney was made the Patron Saint of Paris Priests by Pope Pius XI and his feast day was inserted into the General Roman Calendar, although the initial dates were the 9th August, then the 8th August. The final revision took place in 1969 to make the Roman Catholic Religion feast day, the day he died, being 4th August.
Statues of Jean Vianney can be found within numerous Catholic churches throughout the world, and the Eglise Saint-Roch in Paris is no exception, although unfortunately, we have been unable to find out who sculpted this particular statue called Le saint cure d'ars heros du sacerdoce.
However, if you wish to see this statue of The holy priest of ars heroes of the priesthood, then this is located within a chapel of the Eglise Saint-Roch called Chapelle Saint-Etienne, and when you have entered the church from the Rue Saint-Honore, this is located on the right hand side.
