If you want to grow in your relationship with God, you need to do this.
St. Francis de Sales was a 17th-century spiritual master who wrote one of the most influential spiritual classics of all time, entitled Introduction to the Devout Life. It presented the spiritual life in an approachable manner that appeals both to the consecrated religious in the cloister as well as the lay person in the world.
Here are seven helpful quotes from this profound book, where de Sales details how to examine your own spiritual life so that it is possible to grow in your relationship with God.
