    One thought on “Treatise on the Love of God

    1. 7jane

      For some reason I haven't put this up in GR though I've read it some time ago. But the subject is loving God, connecting to God through contemplation, meditation and prayer, following God's will, practicing nonattachment to the world, and how love of God inspires our virtues. This book is a companion book to "Introduction to the Devout Life", and it's addressed to another 'reader figure' who is in this case written as a male figure, though again meant for anyone. It's perhaps a little less flowi [...]

      Add this to the ever-growing list of books that should have been assigned in seminary, but wasn't. And place this little volume at the top of that list. St. Francis de Sales knew the depths of the soul and the mysterious love of God with great familiarity. These brief meditations address any searching believer who desires to be filled with the love of God. Along the way, de Sales describes the many ways we resist that love and the practices necessary to cultivate the gift of God's love in Christ [...]

      This is a "Wow!" kind of book, simultaneously accessible and profound. Bernard Bangley did a masterful job of condensing the hefty original work down to 140 coherent and surprisingly practical pages. Francis de Sales (1567-1622) had a reputation for holiness and for great preaching when he was Bishop of Geneva. Reading this book, it is easy to see why. Fortunately, this treatise is more than a relic from Christian history; it's a gift that keeps on giving, like its subject. My copy of the book n [...]

      This is a thorough exploration of the effect, nature, and demands of God’s incredible love in a human soul. There were sections that I found dry, overly technical, particularly those dealing with morality. But there were others that were soaringly beautiful, profoundly challenging, deeply insightful. There are parts of this book that I will be thinking about for a very long time.

    5. Galicius

      St Francis de Sales Treatise on the Love of God is not only a good source for meditation but a source for inspiration, learning and growth.This is spiritual writing and St. Francis deals with concepts to reflect on in a prayerful manner. One of the great mysteries he explores is that the soul experiencing Divine Love will eventually become one with God in Heaven. This indicates to me as if some sort of a union is expected. That is a great mystery.

    6. Ona Kiser

      This book was so moving. St. Francis de Sales' intense love for God shines out in his writing and is very inspiring. I really enjoyed it. Straightforward enough for a lay person to enjoy (though probably not of interest if you aren't Catholic).

    7. Walter

      St. Francis De Sales is the author of the pre-eminent work on Catholic spiritual formation, "The Introduction to the Devout Life." I have read that work several times and it is priceless, so when I came across the "Treatise on the Love Of God", I thought it could never live up to the standard set by St. Francis in the "Introduction." Not only was I wrong about that, I found the Treatise to be even better than the "Introduction" in many respects.The "Treatise" is longer than the "Introduction" an [...]
