New website teaches Salesian spirituality


Ever heard the phrase, “Grow where you’re planted?” It comes from St. Francis de Sales, bishop, doctor, and great homilist.
I've always enjoyed St. Francis' way of writing -- using living things like bees and owls to illustrate the spiritual life. But now I'm discovering that his call to holiness for those in all walks of life is very appealing.
There's a new website with a blog and a chat room that teaches others this spirituality. It's been launched by the Second Federation of the Order of the Visitation of Holy Mary. Check it out at!


Thanks for sharing, Kevin. Yes, I appreciate his approach also. St Francis employs the homely yet profound style of Jesus.
