St. Francis de Sales was born in 1567 in Savoy, became a doctor of law at the age of 24 at the Jesuit College of Clermont, Paris, and was ordained a priest and stationed in Geneva in 1593. He became bishop of Geneva in 1602. Though known for his great intellect and theological wisdom, he spoke with simplicity and earnestness, so that all could understand. An Introduction to the Devout Life, his best-loved work, is based on notes he wrote for a cousin for marriage, stressing that sanctity is possible in everyday life.
