Henri Gheon has a flare for telling with irresistible simplicity the stories of the saints. From the titles, which instantly inspire curiosity, to the last simple sentence, the reader is held. Especially is this true of the story of the naive French peasant M. Vianny, who at the age of four, was discovered praying in the bar. Though he lived in the 19th century, he is still known today as the Cure d'Ars. Chesterton has added a delightful note.
