Salesian- [suh-leez-juhn]

Salesian Spirituality is a lived and living tradition inspired by St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622) and St. Jane de Chantal (1572-1641). It emphasizes common sense and the power of doing little, ordinary and everyday things for God and others with great passion and great love. It is a down-to-earth way of living the Gospel of Jesus Christ…wherever you find yourself.

St. Francis de Sales tells each of us to”bloom where we are planted.” This spirituality offers practical ideas on how to journey through the spiritual life with great hope and joy as we embrace the duties of “where we are planted” and respond to the universal call to holiness. It’s a “spirituality of the heart” as relevant today as in the time of St. Francis and St. Jane, an all-embracing, down-to-earth spirituality for everyone.
