January 24 - Saint Francis de Sales
Francis came from a wealthy family and studied law. When he returned to France after his studies, he devoted himself to working hard. He did not seem interested in obtaining a higher position or a social status. Francis was hearing the call to become a priest. His family did not approve, but Francis became a priest. He worked to heal the divisions among the Christians and founded a congregation of religious, the Order of the Visitation. St. Francis wrote many books on the spiritual life. He is the patron saint of the Catholic press.
How do you try to listen to your calling? Is there something you are being called to, but have attempted to resist?
