Proudly We Hail A Story of St Francis de Sales

share on Facebook


by Brother Flavius C.S.C.

In 1567, Francis was born in Savoy, France. Even at his baptism, people in attendance could sense that there was something special about this child of God. During his college years, Francis experienced a deep despair. Remembering that the Blessed Virgin is the comfort of despairing sinners, he turned to her for help. Afterward, he experienced a deep peace and his despair was gone. Francis lived a life of simplicity and kindness that helped bring others closer to God. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Saint Francis de Sales, who called on the Blessed Virgin Mary in his hour of need and whose kindness helped others experience God’s peace.
