Practical Piety


I recommend to you holy simplicity. Look close before you,
and do not look at those dangers which you see afar off. You
fancy they are armies; they are only trees in the distance, and
whilst you are gazing at them you may make some false steps.
… Saint Francois de Sales (1567-1622), Practical Piety

  1. I went to a church named St. Francis De Sales. I was wondering about his history. Now, I am intrigued, with his writings!
    Thank You
