Altogether beautiful, pure and good

"As mountain hares become white in winter
because they neither see nor eat anything but snow,
so by adoring and feeding on beauty, purity
and goodness itself in the Eucharist you will
become altogether beautiful, pure, and good."

St Francis de Sales

France/Switzerland ~ 1567-1622
Prolific writer and apologist

Co-Founder of Sisters of the Visitation
FEAST DAY - January 24 

“Do not look forward in fear to the changes in life; rather, look to them with full hope that as they arise, God, whose very own you are, will lead you safely through all things; and when you cannot stand it, God will carry you in His arms.  Do not fear what may happen tomorrow; the same understanding Father who cares for you today will take care of you then and every day.  He will either shield you from suffering or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.  Be at peace, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.”  ~ St Francis de Sales

St Francis de Sales, ora pro nobis!
