 Our Description

 

Edited by John McClernon

 

Wouldn't you look forward to spending a few minutes with St. Francis de Sales, one of the best known and loved saints of all time? The life and message of this great saint and Doctor of the Church has blessed millions of Catholics around the globe. His simple, straightforward advice has helped many gain a better understanding of the spiritual life and a deeper union with Christ.

This deluxe book contains a collection of hundreds of direct quotes and short sayings of St. Francis de Sales, carefully arranged by the major virtues of the Christian life. The quotes are arranged and classified by the virtues represented in the classic 15 decade Rosary. The Rosary mysteries provide us a mosaic of virtues for the spiritual life, a ladder for advancing in holiness and in the love of God.

"The great doctor of the soul, St. Francis de Sales, offers to the hungry soul of modern man a rich banquet of spiritual insight and wisdom. Drawn from the saint's classic writings, sermons, and letters, his words of guidance are immediately accessible, a treasure house which laymen and religious alike will find himself going to repeatedly, even daily."
-Michael O'Brien, Author, Father Elijah

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.
