The Catholic Controversy - St. Francis de Sales Defence Of The Faith

by St. Francis de Sales

This book is a collection of pamphlets written by St. Francis de Sales as a young priest (27 to 29) struggling to reach people who would not listen to him: the 72,000 Calvinists of the French Chablais region, who had lost the Faith 60 years previous. The task looked hopeless yet in four years 72,000 had returned to the Catholic Faith. Here are some of the most cogent arguments against Protestantism ever penned, presenting a defense of the Faith that has never been equaled.

Profile
    Born in a castle to a well-placed family, his parents intended that he become a lawyer, enter politics, and carry on the family line and power. Studied at La Roche, Annecy, Clermont College in Paris, and law at the University of Padua. Doctor of Law. He returned home, and found a position as Senate advocate.

    It was at this point that he received a message telling him to "Leave all and follow Me." He took this as a call to the priesthood, a move his family fiercely opposed. However, he pursued a devoted prayer life, and his gentle ways won over the family.

    Priest. Provost of the diocese of Geneva, Switzerland, a stronghold of Calvinists. Preacher, writer and spiritual director in the district of Chablais. His simple, clear explanations of Catholic doctrine, and his gentle way with everyone, brought many back to the Roman Church.

    Bishop of Geneva at age 35. Travelled and evangelized throughout the Duchy of Savoy, working with children whenever he could. Friend of Saint Vincent de Paul. Turned down a wealthy French bishopric. Helped found the Order of the Visitation with Saint Jeanne de Chantal. Prolific correspondent. Doctor of the Church.
