Living Life from the Heart with St Francis de Sales

Part of our Pocketbook Series

A short biography of the "Gentle Saint" who is the patron and namesake of the Salesians of Don Bosco.

Paperback portrait 105mm x 148mm



From a very early age Francis desired to serve God. He became noted for his deep faith and his gentle approach to the religious divisions in his land resulting from the Protestant Reformation. This brief biography draws attention to the correspondence between the human heart and God's heart, through which Francis urges us to let go of any anxiety that seeks to rob us of the inner peace and joy that God desires for us.
