Introduction to the Devout Life

The Introduction to the Devout Life by Francis de Sales is one of my many favourite devotion and spiritual books. Even though it was written in 1608, it has relevance to the teaching of our spiritual growth and spiritual direction has not decreased.

In fact, I would consider Francis de Sales as one of my many spiritual directors as his writings continues to inspire, guide and point me to the Transcendent in my everyday life.

For a more comprehensive study of his writings, I find this book, Francis de Sales, Jane de Chantal: Letters of Spiritual Direction 1988 (New York:Paulist Press) which is part of The Classics of Western Spirituality series worth reading.
