Quote of the Day (St. Francis de Sales, on Inward Peace)

“Do not lose your inward peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. Commend all to God, and then lie still and be at rest in His bosom. Whatever happens, abide steadfast in a determination to cling simply to God, trusting to His eternal love for you; and if you find that you have wandered forth from this shelter, recall your heart quietly and simply.”—St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622), letter to Jane de Chantal, 1607, in A Selection From the Spiritual Letters of S. Francis de Sales (1880)
