St Francis de Sales, famous Doctor of the Church, is one of the greatest masters of the spiritual life - a wise, learned and gentle teacher for all. In these 12 sermons, preached to the Visitation nuns in Lent of 1622, St Francis covers most of the central teachings of the Christian life.

Familiar with the foolishness and weakness of the human heart, St Francis points out to his hearers the manifold ways of getting sidetracked from the practice of solid virtue, as well as the folly of insisting of serving God in our own way. He exhorts those in all states and vocations to have great hope and confidence in God, along with a salutary fear of eternal damnation.

In these sermons the Christian attitude toward life comes into clear focus on every page. All who follow the wise and holy counsels of St Francis de Sales as presented here will indeed be on the true path of holiness and salvation, measuring all things in terms of eternity and advancing steadily towards heaven, our only real home.


The 12 sermons are:

-Eternal Happiness
-Election and reprobation
-Mutual charity
-Proper conduct in illness
-God’s spiritual providence
-Proper fear of death
-Hearing the Word of God
-Humility and Obedience
-The Passion of Our Lord and what it means
