Introduction to the Devout Life by St. Francis de Sales (St. Benedict Press Classic) – Since its first publication in 1609, Introduction to the Devout Life has never gone out of print. It has always occupied a privileged position in the Church: no guide ever written provides so complete, so balanced and so practical an approach to the spiritual life. Written for the layman surrounded by worldliness, this is a masterpiece of mystical and devotional literature, by a great and much loved Doctor of the Church. St. Francis de Sales was a master psychologist, with a special gift for teaching practical morality. Supreme Knight Carl Anderson and Father Lewis S. Fiorelli held an online discussion of the book on Feb. 25.
