More About Saint De Sales Francis

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! St. Francis de Sales was born in 1567 to Francois and Francoise de Boisy in what is currently Haute-Savoie, France. His father sent him to a good school when he was young, and he received spiritual formation from the Jesuits. After a disturbing spiritual fear of being condemned, he eventually resolved his problem and decided to dedicate his life to God in 1587. He became a doctor of law at the age of 24 at the Jesuit College of Clermont, Paris, and was ordained a priest by Bishop Claude de Granier and stationed in Geneva in 1593. He became bishop of Geneva in 1602.
Francis de Sales is the author of various collections of sermons on Mary, Lent, prayer and Christmastide, as well as a work entitled Set Your Heart Free, edited by John Kirvan. He was known as a spiritually understanding man as well as a friend of the poor. Though known for his great intellect and theological wisdom, he spoke with simplicity and earnestness, so that all could understand. An Introduction to the Devout Life , his best-loved work, is based on notes he wrote for a cousin for marriage, stressing that sanctity is possible in everyday life. He died in 1622 on December 28, and was canonized by Pope Alexander VII in 1665. His feast is celebrated on January 24.

St Francis de Sales was born in 1567 and died in 1622.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Speaks directly to the dilemmas faced by modern men and women  Feb 5, 2007
This book is a wonderful guide for anyone asking, Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going?

Although the text is from the 17th century, there is nothing "medieval" about it. The prose is modern and every accessible, and the ideas and advice are more apropos today than ever.

I would not change anything in my life without first meditating on the counsel St. Frances provides here.
Needs To Be Read Slowly and Re-read to Get the Most Out of This!  Jun 30, 2006
Although the author doesn't out and out tell you what God's will is for you, he does a good job here in telling you what it's not as well as how to discover it yourself through contemplation and meditation on scripture.

At 147 pages, this is not really a light read so make sure you read this in a quiet place and at a slow pace; otherwise, you may feel a little lost and the ideas at the beginning are linked and take time to develop and once you lose the train of thought, it gets difficult to find it again. But if you take the effort to do so and to re-read it if necessary, you will find this book to be a great encouragement and an affirmation that God does have your well-being at heart and will help you discern His will, which ultimately leads to what brings the greatest joy and satisfaction, if you but learn to listen to His promptings.

St. Francis de Sales gives some very convincing and helpful suggestions here on how to do just that.
Great spiritual and psychological insight  Feb 12, 2002
I love reading this saint's works because of his practical and insightful writings. He seems to be able to shine a light on psychological motivations, rationalizations and defenses, and to carefully examine them in the rays of truth. Sometimes it feels like he's almost ruthlessly piecing through and blowing all my cover. One of his passages seems to particuarly address the problems of modern men and women:

The enemy often tries to make us attempt and start many projects so that we will be overwhelmed with too many tasks, and therefore, achieve nothing and leave everything unfinished. Simetimes he even suggests the wish to undertake some excellent work that he forsees we will never accomplish. This is to distract us from the prosecution of some less excellent work that we would have easily completed. He does not care how many...beginnings we make, provided nothing is finished...But with Christians, it is not so much the beginning as the end that counts.

He gives a mini-medieval version of a time management class, with Christ at the center. Much of his work is very practical, and makes you look at yourself very carefully. A book that deserves a thoughtful and slow read.
