Simple Secrets of holiness
that the saints themselves use
ÔÇö revealed by a saint!

There are as many paths to holiness as there are saints in Heaven . . . but you canÔÇÖt follow them all. Yet thereÔÇÖs one thing every saint practices that you can imitate: the simple art of loving God, which the beloved St. Francis de Sales explains for you here.

Under his wise and gentle guidance, youÔÇÖll discover the secrets to growing holier through the simple things in life ÔÇö work, play, and rest. YouÔÇÖll learn to avoid the distractions (even religious distractions) that trouble and weary your soul . . . and youÔÇÖll soon be able to focus your energy simply on loving God.

Listen to the holy words of this saint; take them to heart; make them a part of your life. Soon youÔÇÖll be well on your way, following that path to Heaven that God, from all eternity, has given you as your very own.

St. Francis de Sales himself
will teach you the secrets of developing:

  • Patience

  • Trust

  • Modesty

  • Courage

  • Simplicity

  • Humility

  • Obedience

  • Generosity

  • Perseverance

  • Selflessness

  • Gentleness

  • Love of God

  • and other key virtues.

A note for the skeptical and discouraged:

Have you tried to grow closer to God using one technique after another, yet still find you havenÔÇÖt made much progress? ThatÔÇÖs a common problem in todayÔÇÖs world, where devotion has become so complicated that the simple art of loving God has been lost.

DonÔÇÖt despair. Generations of Christians have made finding God harder than it need be, which is why, every few hundred years, God sends us a saint like St. Francis de Sales to remind us that anyone can love God and that itÔÇÖs not really so hard to do. Listen to St. Francis, and, no matter how many times youÔÇÖve failed in the past, youÔÇÖll soon be a master of the art of loving God.
St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622), a bishop and a Doctor of the Church, was remarkable not only for his holiness, but also for the wisdom with which he directed souls in the way of sanctity. Throughout his life, he worked tirelessly to win souls to the Church and to build within the Church a community of devout persons living lives of Christian perfection in all their varied states and vocations.
