St. Francis de Sales and the Salesians: A Spirituality for the Modern World

Learn from the powerful model of Salesian spirituality and deepen your relationship with God and the world through this 12-part lecture series by Dr. Wendy Wright, PhD, profession of theology at Creighton University.

St. Francis de Sales (1567–1622) was born to a life of privilege, but after experiencing a profound conversion, he abandoned his wealth to devote himself to God. He went on to become a champion of the poor and a renowned preacher. Along with his spiritual friend St. Jane de Chantal, St. Francis de Sales taught the tradition of devout humanism. The Salesian tradition carries a vital message: God desires you to know and be close to him.

These 12 inspiring lectures invite you to reflect on this message, leading you to the full realization of your identity as beloved son or daughter of God. Under the guidance of one of the world’s leading Salesian spirituality experts, you will explore inspiring models in the Salesian tradition.
