The Spirit of S. Francis De Sales

£12.99

Product description

Although there is no dust jacket, the boards are in good condition with only slight bumping at the corners and pulling on the spine. Dark blue with the title gilt embossed on the front cover  and surrounded by a gilt embossed, spiritually inspired, design; the title and publisher's mark is gilt embossed on the spine. The pages are gilt-edged; whilst yellowed with age they  are clean and legible.  The (cut) binding is still tight.

 THE SPIRIT OF a Saint we may, perhaps, regard as the underlying characteristic which pervades all his thoughts, words, and acts. It is the note which sounds throughout the constant persevering harmony which makes the holiness of his life. Circumstances change. He grows from childhood to boyhood; from youth to manhood. His time of preparation is unnoticed by the world until the moment comes when he is called to a public activity which arrests attention. And essentially he remains the same. In private as in public, in intimate conversation as in writings or discourses, in the direction of individual consciences as in the conduct of matters of wide importance, there is a characteristic note which identifies him, and marks him off apart even from other heroes of sanctity.
