Feast of St. Francis de Sales, Bishop and Doctor (1567 – 1622)


“Our business is to love what God would haveCompeting done. He wills our vocation as it is. Let us love that and not trifle away our time hankering after other people’s vocations.”
                                   ~St. Francis de Sales


For Reflection:

How can “hankering after other people’s vocations” lead me to be discontented with what God has chosen for me? How does it deprive me of grace? In what ways can it lead me into sin?

An Unusual Commitment to Scripture

The Great Commandment. “Hear O, Israel!  the LORD is our God, the LORD alone!  Therefore you shall love the LORD, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength.  Take to heart these words which I enjoin on you today.  Drill them into your children.  Speak of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest.  Bind them at your wrist as a sign and let them be as a pendant on your forehead.  Write them on the doorposts of your houses and on your gates” (Deuteronomy 6:4-9).
