Anyone who is seriously seeking the path of gospel freedom will find in St Francis de Sales a sure guide to accompany them in the way of love. This book presents in detail the spiritual journey as outlined by St Francis de Sales. Incidents from the life of the saint are related to illustrate how he overcame certain difficulties and eventually arrived at an understanding of God's goodness that is unshakeable. As an adolescent, Francis passed through a severe personal crisis, but emerged convinced of God's love and desire to save everyone. It is this complete trust and confidence in the goodness of God that is the touchstone of his spirituality. Drawing attention to the correspondence between the human heart and God's heart, he urges us to let go of any anxiety that seeks to rob us of the inner peace and joy that God desires for us.
