For inasmuch as divine love adorns the soul, it is called grace, making us pleasing to the Divine Majesty: inasmuch as it gives us the strength to do good, it is called charity; but when it has arrived at that degree of perfection, by which it not only makes us act well, but also work diligently, frequently, and readily, then it is called devotion.         (St. Francis de Sales –  An Introduction to the Devout Life – Chapter 1)

I am reading the spiritual classic “An Introduction to the Devout Life”, by St. Frances de Sales. I will be posting select prayers from this book in a new series of posts.
