Overview

In his letters, Saint Francis de Sales provides his most intimate and practical advice on the spiritual life. Here the saint writes with his characteristic warmth and insight into human nature. The Veuillot-Mackey collection consists of 186 letters of the saint addressed to people in lay life. Subjects include discerning vocations, questions of marriage, lawsuits, and life decisions, family births and deaths, marital life and relationships, private devotions, prayer and meditation, and conformity to the will of God and the situation in which we find ourselves. Included in this collection are many letters of spiritual direction to Madame de Chantal, with whom St. Frances de Sales would found the Congregation of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin.
