In these 12 sermons, preached to the Visitation nuns in Lent of 1622, St. Francis de Sales covers most of the central teachings of the Christian life. Familiar with the foolishness and weakness of the human heart, St. Francis points out to his hearers the manifold ways of getting sidetracked from the practice of solid virtue, as well as the folly of insisting on serving God in our own way. He exhorts those in all states and vocations to have great hope and confidence in God, along with a salutary fear of eternal damnation. Paper.
