Sermons of the Cure of Ars – Saint John Maria Vianney, the parish priest of Ars-
In a certain parish there was a young man who was a model of virtue. He went to Mass almost every day and to Holy Communion often. It happened that another was jealous of the esteem in which this young man was held, and one day, when they were both in the company of a neighbour, who possessed a lovely gold snuffbox, the jealous one took it from its owner’s pocket and placed it, unobserved, in the pocket of the young man.
After he had done this, without pretending anything, he asked to see the snuffbox. The owner expected to find it in his pocket and was astonished when he discovered that it was missing. No one was allowed to leave the room until everyone had been searched, and the snuffbox was found, of course, on the young man who was a model of goodness. Naturally, everyone immediately called him a thief and attacked his religious professions, denouncing him as a hypocrite.
He could not defend himself, since the box had been found in his pocket. He said nothing. He suffered it all as something which had come from the hand of God. Everyone who saw him jeered at him and called him a hypocrite. This went on for quite a long time, but in spite of it, he continued with his Confessions, his Communions, and all of his prayers, just as if everyone were treating him with the utmost respect.
After some years, the man who had been the cause of it all fell ill. To those who were with him he confessed that he had been the origin of all the evil things which had been said about this young man, who was a saint, and that through jealousy of him, so that he might destroy his good name, he himself had put the snuffbox in the young man’s pocket.
There, my brethren, is a religion which is true, which has taken root in the soul.
