Blessed John Vianney Holy Water Font

$82.00

This is a wonderful antique holy water font.  The central image is a metal medallion with a portrait of St. John Vianney.  Around the saint are the words in French “Blessed J. B. M. Vianney Cure D’Ars Pray for Us”. Beneath the medallion is plaque that reads “Souvenir of Ars”.

The font bowl is elaborately decorated. It shows a dove, representing the Holy Spirit, amidst flowers with an angel at the base.  Beautiful!

St. John Vianney, also known as the Cure of Ars, was well known for his piety, his support of priests, and his devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. He became a very popular confessor and is famous for spending 16-18 hours a day in the confessional absolving sinners. He is the patron saint of priests.

Since this piece refers to Vianney as “Blessed” we can know that it dates between 1905 and 1925.
