Introduction to the Devout Life

280.00

This all-time Spiritual classic by St Francis de Sales emphasizes that spiritual perfection is possible not merely for people who withdraw from the affairs of the world but also for those busy with the humdrum of life’s daily chores. The author — named Patron of writers by Pope Pius XI in 1923 — outlines this possibility with such clarity of thought that the reader cannot help but be convinced that life as a whole can be more fulfilling if based on the spiritual. A masterpiece both in terms of language and spirituality, this book — whose original French edition first appeared in print in the year 1608 — covers an extremely wide range of topics concerning faith and morals, thus making for a fuller understanding of the tenets of Catholic belief and practice. Consequently, whether it is prayer or poverty, anger or anxiety, temperance or temptation, marriage, love, games, whatever, each chapter helps draw the reader a step closer to a spiritual union with the Lord.
