Oblates of St.Francis de Sales
“Let us be what we are and be that well, in order to bring honor to the Master Craftsman whose handiwork we are.” – St. Francis de Sales
Salesian Spirituality developed out of the life and teachings of Ss. Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal. It developed out of De Sales’ experience as bishop of a small diocese and advisor to a wide variety of people who were interested in living out their faith in their daily lives. Most of his advice was given through letters of spiritual direction written in his spare time that were later collected and published in his classic work Introduction to the Devout Life. They continue to guide all those seeking to live out their baptismal commitment by “living Jesus” in all aspects of their life.
