St Francis de Sales

Today is the feast of St Francis de Sales who was bishop of Geneva, died in 1622, and was canonised in 1665. Famed for his writing and preaching, he was a great ecumenical preacher of the Truth, advocated holiness for all states of life, and wrote with wisdom and gentle humour. He was and declared a Doctor of the Church in 1877 by Pope Blessed Pius IX. My sermon for today's feast can be read here. This image of the saint is in the Bologna Oratory.
