Item Description...
Treatise on the Love of God is in every respect a great work. Because of the book's order, clarity and sound doctrine, and because of St. Francis de Sales' vast knowledge and mastery of language, the work is an acknowledged classic. Excellently versed in both the Fathers and the Scholastics-especially St. Thomas Aquinas-St. Francis de Sales also shows his intimate knowledge of Sacred Scripture, startling the reader with surprising insights into its hidden spiritual meanings. A learned man in a learned era, St. Francis de Sales was moreover widely read in the Greek and Latin classics. The Treatise on the Love of God has well been called "the greatest work of genius in theology since St. Thomas, and one of the most learned." After laying the Scholastic groundwork (Book 1 of the Treatise), St. Francis de Sales launches into a masterful combination of theological principles and practical application regarding divine love-which is the subject of Our Lord's First and greatest Commandment. Going right to the heart of true religion, he shows how everything in the Catholic Faith hinges on this holy love and its growth in the soul. And in harmony with all Catholic teaching, he affirms that human actions are worthless when done without divine love (i.e., not in the state of Sanctifying Grace). Treatise on the Love of God brings the reader a giant step forward toward learning the great science of the Saints-the practice of the love of God.

More About St. Francis de Sales & Henry Benedit Mackey

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.

555 Pp. PB. Masterful combination of theological principles and practical application regarding divine love-the subject of Our Lord's first and greatest commandment. Based on Scripture, the Fathers, St. Thomas, it reveals the author's great learning. An acknowledged classic which goes to the heart of the True Religion
