“Be who you are and be that well.”

― Francis de Sales, Introduction to the Devout Life

 

Francis de Sales was a 16th-century Catholic bishop from Geneva and was a voice of reason during the unrest caused by the Protestant Reformation. His most famous and important work was ‘Introduction to the Devout Life’ – a treatise that saw immense popularity both during and after his de Sales’ life and with both Catholic and Protestant readers. This work serves as a guide to spiritual devotion and moral living. This work differs from others like it in that de Sales intentionally wrote the work to be applicable to any Christian at any stage in their spiritual journey. De Sales is quoted as saying in ‘Devout Life’:

“My purpose is to instruct those who live in town, within families, or at court, and are obliged to live an ordinary life as to outward appearances”
