St Francis de Sales detail

Saint Francis de Sales (21 August 1567 - 28 December 1622) was bishop of Geneva, Switzerland. He worked to convert Protestants back to Catholicism, and was an accomplished preacher. He is known also for his writings on the topic of spiritual direction and spiritual formation (including Introduction to the Devout Life), and other religious subjects. De Sales was beatified by Pope Alexander VII in 1661 and canonized by the same pontiff in 1665. He was declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius IX in 1877. His feast day falls on 24 January.
