About St. Francis de Sales

St. Francis de Sales (1567–1622), known as the Gentle Saint, was bishop of Geneva. His motto was, “He who preaches with love preaches effectively,” and his religious texts, including Introduction to the Devout Life, have resonated with many non-Catholics. Pope Pius IX proclaimed him a patron saint of writers. Some consider him a patron saint of the deaf; he invented a form of sign language to teach a young deaf man how to communicate.

      Ha ha ha – Well, I was born in the late 50’s….. so I missed the excitement of the 60’s while attending grade school. Now the 70’s we won’t talk about. **big happy grin**. (Lizard Specialized Dying) cracks me up! 😀
