Saint Francis of Sales



Today January 24 is Saint François de Sales feast day and he was from the French Alps!
He was a priest, a bishop, a Doctor of the Church; author of many books on the Interior life and how to grow in the love of God and love of neighbor; he was known for his gentleness and patience towards all, for his efforts at dialog and diplomacy when seeking the conversion of protestants, he handwrote his sermons on pieces of paper and slip them under their doors and it is said that he brought back more than 40,000 people into the fold of the Church, he is the patron Saint of teachers and students, of writers and journalists. Saint François de Sales, priez pour nous!
