Advice and encouragement for lay Catholics pursuing a personal relationship with God from a Doctor of the Church.

The first book of the Catholic Classics series, Introduction to the Devout Life is an updated translation of St. Francis de Sales’ original text that makes this key work of Catholic Tradition approachable to modern readers.

Written as a letter to St. Francis’ lay cousin, this classic yet relevant text features advice on the questions that members of the Catholic laity often ask themselves, such as:

> Is living a holy life possible for those called to a vocation other than the religious life?
> What does spiritual meditation and prayer look like amid the demands of daily life?
> How can virtues be pursued and vices rooted out when temptations and occasions of sin abound?
> Why can setting aside daily time for silent prayer and meditation seem like such a daunting task?
> And more!
