Make Disciples, Be Witnesses

Letters from a Saint

This four-part study of St. Francis de Sales' devotional classic, Introduction to the Devout Life, is a practical guide for anyone aspiring to deepen their spiritual life.

LENT: Spiritual Warfare

The Christian life is a battle against the world, the flesh, and the Devil. Lent is a time especially set aside for this combat. Each week during Lent, we will train with one of the weapons that God has given us to fight the good fight of the faith. This training will help us resist temptation so we can grow in holiness and be ready to participate in Christ’s victory over Satan on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
