Day 38: Enduring Desolation (Introduction to the Devout Life)

Catholic Classics

Nov 30 2022 • 25 mins

Saint Francis de Sales explores common causes of desolation while assuring us that works performed and prayers offered in times of dryness are more precious in the sight of God. Fr. Gregory and Fr. Jacob-Bertrand lead us to find freedom in these seasons by calling it what it is, calling on the name of the Lord, and continuing to show up despite the temptation not to.
