The St. Francis de Sales Signature Set is representative of why St. Francis was so well-received during the Counter-Reformation, and indeed, throughout history since. One can easily see why he received the title “Doctor of Charity” from the works included (Introduction to the Devout Life, Consoling Thoughts, Sermons, and The Catholic Controversy), as each evidences his outpouring of love for all souls:
- Introduction to the Devout Life showcases his efforts to help other souls love God like he did
- Consoling Thoughts expresses his love for suffering souls in giving them solace and the exhortation to continue
- His Sermons relay his daily care for his flock, preaching to them about the different aspects God’s love
- And finally, The Catholic Controversy demonstrates his apologetical love, exerting effort to win souls back to the Church
Perhaps more than any other saint, St. Francis preached the truth with love. His teachings, his works, and his very presence were consoling to those 72,000 lost souls of Switzerland and to millions more over the centuries. Now, with these four beautiful, hardbound, embossed volumes, it is our hope that they will offer hope and consolation to a new generation of Catholics and spur on greater love of God and neighbor.
