The Gentleman Saint

(January 29th is the feast day of St. Francis de Sales on the traditional Roman sanctoral calendar.)

Go courageously to do whatever
you are called to do.
If you have any fears, say to your soul:
”The Lord will provide for us.”
If your weakness troubles you,
cast yourselves on God, and trust in him.
The apostles were mostly unlearned fishermen,
but God gave them learning enough
for the work they had to do.
Trust in him, depend on his providence;
fear nothing.

-St. Francis de Sales
