Salesian Quote of the Day

Annecy, France is the “Venice of the Alps” and the time honored place where St Francis de Sales served as Bishop and the location of the first community of the Sisters of the Visitation of Holy Mary. Walk down the long hill to the quaint town and head for the Lake of Annecy, a perennial place of beauty as well as boating, fishing and swimming, surrounded by the foothills of the Alps. The narrow streets of the old city are packed with cheese and charcuterie shops, ice cream stands, bakeries, cafes, and even chocolate shops.

 

Salesian Quote of the Day

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

 

Salesian Quote of the Day

There is no danger if our prayer is without words or reflection because the good success of prayer depends neither on words nor on study. It depends upon the simple raising of our minds to God, and the more simple and stripped of feeling it is, the surer it is.
~ St. Jane Francis de Chantal

Salesian Quote of the Day

“Oh Dios mío, no me  apartes de delante de tu faz y no me quites tu santo Espíritu. Ilumina tu rostro sobre tu sierva, y  meditaré tus maravillas. Dame inteligencia y  consideraré tu ley, y la guardaré en mi  corazón. Yo soy tu sierva; dame el  espíritu.”
~ San Francisco de Sales, Introducción a la vida devota
