St John Vianney was a French priest who was renowned as a confessor and for his supernatural powers. He is the patron saint of parish priests.
The Benedictine Abbey of Saint Michael at Farnborough was founded from the French Abbey of Solesmes in 1895. The monks live a traditional life of prayer, work and study in accordance with the ancient rule of Saint Benedict. At the heart of their life is the praise of God expressed through the solemn celebration of the sacred liturgy, and supported through their manual work, of which this card is an example.
