Consoling Thoughts on Sickness and Death

by St. Francis de Sales (Compiled by Rev. Huguet)

128pp. paperback

In this excellent collection from the writings of St. Francis de Sales, the beloved Doctor of the Church teaches how to grow closer to God through suffering well the most bitter trials.

The bed of sickness is an altar of sacrifice, writes the saint in this treasure of spirituality.  He explains what prayers are suitable for the sick, how to persevere in patience, and even how to overcome an excessive fear of death.  Most importantly, St. Francis de Sales teaches about abandonment to God's will in both life and death, drawing from his memories of the deaths of his own mother and sister.

Readers of Consoling Thoughts on Sickness and Death will experience firsthand why St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622) is known to history as  the Gentle Saint.   St. Francis was Bishop of Geneva and a tireless preacher, who yet made time to correspond with numerous souls who wrote him for his insight and guidance. His Consoling Thoughts are compiled from these letters as well as from his other spiritual works.

    This book is very helpful but written in an 'old school' way. Regardless, much wisdom in words...very helpful
