 Our Description

Images of travel and voyages abound in the writings of St. Francis de Sales who encouragingly and alluringly invites those seeking his guidance to travel the road that Jesus himself has so graciously and courageously opened up for us. This he has done by his life, death and resurrection, thereby giving us access to God. It is St. Francis de Saless thought and ideas that are paraphrased and adapted here to present an enticing invitation to make this Lenten journey in his company and in that of Our Lord.

Accept the invitation to journey through Lent with Jesus Christ and one of the great spiritual writers of the Catholic Church, St. Francis de Sales. Inside you will find an Invitation from St. Francis de Sales, a short biography of St. Francis de Sales, a description of the Salesian Spirit, and more. Each day of Lent, weekdays and Sundays, begins with: a Gospel Reading, a selection from the Writings of St. Francis de Sales, a Reflection, and a Prayer.

May the presence of Jesus Christ and the gentle and loving kindness of St. Francis de Sales guide you on your Lenten Journey, and lead you to Gods Holy Easter of Peace, Love and Joy.

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.
