The Art of Loving God

Simple secrets of holiness that the saints themselves use revealed by a saint!

There are as many paths to holiness as there are saints in Heaven . . . but you cant follow them all. Yet theres one thing every saint practices that you can imitate: the simple art of loving God, which the beloved St. Francis de Sales explains for you here.

Under his wise and gentle guidance, youll discover the secrets to growing holier through the simple things in life work, play, and rest. Youll learn to avoid the distractions (even religious distractions) that trouble and weary your soul . . . and youll soon be able to focus your energy simply on loving God.

Listen to the holy words of this saint; take them to heart; make them a part of your life. Soon youll be well on your way, following that path to Heaven that God, from all eternity, has given you as your very own.

St. Francis de Sales himself will teach you the secrets of developing:

  • Patience
  • Trust
  • Modesty
  • Courage
  • Simplicity
  • Humility
  • Obedience
  • Generosity
  • Perseverance
  • Selflessness
  • Gentleness
  • Love of God
  • and other key virtues
  • A note for the skeptical and discouraged:

    Have you tried to grow closer to God using one technique after another, yet still find you havent made much progress? Thats a common problem in todays world, where devotion has become so complicated that the simple art of loving God has been lost.

    Dont despair. Generations of Christians have made finding God harder than it need be, which is why, every few hundred years, God sends us a saint like St. Francis de Sales to remind us that anyone can love God and that its not really so hard to do. Listen to St. Francis, and, no matter how many times youve failed in the past, youll soon be a master of the art of loving God.
