Pray for us St. Francis de Sales!
“The test of a preacher is that his congregation goes away saying, not 'What a lovely sermon' but, 'I will do something!'”
“There was never an angry man that thought his anger unjust”
"If prayer is a colloquy, a discourse or a conversation of the soul with God, by it, then, we speak to God and He again speaks to us."
“Make friends with the angels, who though invisible are always with you. Often invoke them, constantly praise them, and make good use of their help and assistance in all your temporal and spiritual affairs.”
“If the heart wanders or is distracted, bring it back to the point quite gently and replace it tenderly in its Master's presence. And even if you did nothing during the whole of your hour but bring your heart back and place it again in Our Lord's presence, though it went away every time you brought it back, your hour would be very well employed.”
"Truly CHARITY has no limit; for the LOVE OF GOD has been poured into our hearts by His Spirit dwelling in each one of us, calling us to a life of DEVOTION and inviting us to bloom in the garden where He has planted and directing us to radiate the beauty and spread the fragrance of His Providence."
