Saint Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney, Confessor (1786-1859). The feast of the renowned Curé of Ars and Patron Saint of Parish Priests is this month, on August 8. He was proclaimed Venerable in 1874 by Pope Pius IX, beatified in 1905 by Pope St. Pius X, who himself had a great veneration for the Curé, and Canonized in 1925 by Pope Pius XI.
Animadversione: There is a variance in the listing of feasts on August 8 and 9 in different editions of the Roman Missal, as St. John Vianney’s feast was moved to the previous day in 1960 to give greater prominence to St. Lawrence by way of his vigil. Therefore, August 8 is now the feast of St. John Vianney, with a commemoration of St. Cyriacus, et al. August 9 is the Vigil of St. Lawrence with a commemoration of St. Romanus. Therefore, on August 8 use the Mass of St. John Vianney, but commemorate St. Cyriacus et al. (listed on August 8) instead of St. Romanus.
The Vigil of the Assumption is traditionally observed in the USA as a day of fast and partial abstinence.
The Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a holy day of obligation throughout the USA.
Funerals are permitted every day this month except on the Feast of the Assumption and where a church is celebrating its Titular feast or the anniversary of its own Consecration.
