St Francis de Sales

Today is the feast day of St Francis de Sales, Bishop of Geneva, Confessor and Doctor of the Church. He is the patron saint of writers and journalists.

A man of great wisdom, here are three of my favourite quotes:

Why are you surprised when the weak turn out to be weak, and the frail, frail? When you turn out to be sinful? When you fall be gentle with your frail, weak heart. Lift up your heart gently; accept your failure without wallowing in your weakness. Admit your guilt in God’s sight. Then with good heart, with courage and confidence in His mercy, start over again.

Be who you are, and be that perfectly well!


The measure of love is to love without measure
