Our spiritual guide: St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622)
Bishop and Doctor of the Church he founded the Visitation Order of Holy Mary with Saint Jeanne de Chantal.
The desire of St Francis de Sales in founding the Visitation was to unite the interior life with the apostolate. The virtue based solely on the love of God and one’s neighbour. Holiness does not consist in doing extraordinary things, but lies in the constant faithfulness of living continuously the present moment in the sight of God, and in seeing there the expression of his will.
