He?s mostly known for spending hours in the confessional. He reportedly confessed roughly 100,000 people every year. He died ; 152 years ago, on August 4, 1859. He was declared a Saint in 1925 by Pius XI. Back then few would have imagined, that the young French seminarian, who seemed to be the less skilled among the group, would become a saint and an example for all priest around the world.
