Saints, Scholars & Spiritual Masters 5 - St Francis de Sales
[online evening talk]

Thursday 5 November @7:30pm

Devotion is for Everyone:
The Working Spirituality of St Francis de Sales

Fifth of the online series: Saints, Scholars and Spiritual Masters

The fifth talk of Saints, Scholars and Spiritual Masters will explore the spirituality of a great Bishop and director of souls: St Francis de Sales. Known for his deep love of God and his determination to bring every person – be they lay or religious – to a real holiness of life, he paid special attention to lay people living working lives. Much of his writing was directed to showing such people how to grow in holiness through their day-to-day activity. His fame as a spiritual director brought him into demand from Popes, royalty and nobility. Despite this, he lived out the last word of advice he gave from his deathbed: “humility”.
