No less well known are the ease and amiability with which he received everyone. First of all, you should make known and even explain with all diligence this encyclical both to your clergy and to the people committed to your care. (Acts i, 1). Encyclica. Quare vos, instituto Salesii, efficite, Venerabiles Fratres, ut populus intellegat, vitae sanctimoniam haud esse singulare beneficium, quod aliquibus concedatur, ceteris posthabitis, sed communem omnium sortem et commune officium; virtutum vero adeptionem, etsi in labore posita est – qui labor voluptate animi solaciisque omne genus compensatur – esse tamen unicuique parabilem divinae gratiae praesidio, quod nulli denegatur. Potissimum autem fidelium imitationi Francisci mansuetudinem proponite ; haec enim virtus, quae tam pulcre reddit atque exprimit Iesu Christi benignitatem ac tantum potest ad alliciendos homines, si semel animos vulgo pervaserit, nonne publicae privataeque rationes facile componantur? Ad priorem autem quod attinet, postquam Salesius germanam pietatem ab ea distinxit asperitate quae animos in virtutis exercitatione terrendo debilitat, licet non illo exuat aequo rigore qui christianae disciplinae congruit, in eo totus est ut ostendat, sanctitatem cum omnibus civilis vitae officiis condicionibusque conciliari optime, atque in media saeculi consuetudine quemvis accommodate ad salutem posse degere, modo ne mundi hauriat imbibatque spiritum. The circumstances surrounding the mission of St. Francis to La Chablais are well known to you, Venerable Brothers, for when, towards the close of 1593, as we learn from history, the Duke of Savoy concluded a truce with the inhabitants of Berne and Geneva, nothing was thought more important in order to reconcile the population to the Church than to send them zealous and learned preachers who, by the persuasive force of their eloquence, would slowly but surely win back these people to their allegiance to the Faith.

Nam prima aetate incidimus in ipsam perturbationem disciplinae veteris; et consulatu devenimus in medium rerum omnium certamen atque discrimen; et hoc tempus omne post consulatum obiecimus eis fluctibus, qui, per nos a communi peste depulsi, in nosmet ipsos redundarunt.

The atmosphere of this particular religious community is one of moderation and loving kindness in all things. v, 4). Ne vero Anneciense Visitationis Coenobium, ubi Salesius requiescit — cuius quidem ante venerabile corpus Nos olim incredibili cum voluptate animi Sacrum fecimus — itemque Tarvisinum, in quo cor eius adservatur, ceteraeque Monialium a Visitatione familiae peculiari aliqua careant benignitatis Nostrae significatione, damus, ut quicumque, per sacra menstrua, quae ipsaemet in gratiarum actionem hoc anno habebunt, praetereaque die octavo ac vicesimo mensis Decembris, pariter hoc tantum anno, earum ecclesias de more inviserint atque, poenitentia expiati et Eucharisticis dapibus refecti, ad mentem Nostram oraverint, plenariam item veniam acquirant. Legimus, consuevisse nostrum facillime admittere amanterque excipere omnes, flagitiosos homines in primis et apostatas, qui domum ad se, culpae eluendae emendandaeque causa, confluerent; eundem in deliciis habuisse reos carceribus inclusos, quos crebro invisens multiplicibus recreabat suae caritatis officiis; neque minus indulgenter solitum esse cum famulis suis agere, quorum segnitiam temeritatesque toleranter in exemplum patiebatur. 16:18-20; John 21:15-17) upon St. Peter as head of the Christian Church. Hoc Nos decessoris propositum, tamquam hereditate acceptum, libentissime exsequimur, eo magis quod sperare licet, futurum, ut commemorationis haud ita multo ante habitae fructus huius propediem ordiendae fructibus cumulentur. In this work the saintly Doctor gives a veritable history of the love of God, explaining its origin and development among men, at the same time showing how divine love begins to cool and then to languish. Haec sane praecipua Salesii virtus, ex intimo pectore tamquam dulcissimus fructus caritatis erumpens, cum scilicet miserationis atque indulgentiae spiritu maxime contineretur, ea suavitate et oris gravitatem temperabat et corporis gestum et vocem aspergebat, ut studiosam omnium reverentiam ipsi conciliaret.

In quo quis non agnoscat singularem illam suavitatis cum fortitudine coniunctionem, qualem in legifero Patre admiramur ? On Discipline for Clergy. Some are so immersed in business that they think of nothing but accumulating riches and, by consequences, the spiritual life ceases to exist for them. By your example, may they be able âto maintain always, in discussion, firmness combined with a spirit of moderation and charityâ (Pius XI, encyclical Rerum omnium perturbationem, January 26, â¦ Although at times his language appears to be somewhat strong, nevertheless, as even his opponents admitted, his writings always breathe a spirit of charity which was ever the controlling motive in every controversy in which he engaged. After having pointed out the errors of these latter concerning the nature of the Church, he outlines the notes of the true Church and proves that they are not to be found in the reformed churches, but in the Catholic Church alone. ON ST. FRANCIS DE SALES. Etenim cum virtutibus omnibus exsplendesceret, tum eximiam prae se tulit animi mansuetudinem, quam propriam eius et singularem notam recte dixeris, omnino tamen dissimilem eius fucatae benignitatis, quae in quodam munditiarum urbanarum studio et immoderatae comitatis ostentatione posita est, alienamque prorsus vel a lentitudine seu apathia quae nulla re commovetur vel a timiditate quae ne tum quidem audet, cum oportet, stomachari.

Iamvero, Venerabiles Fratres, quae peracta est superiore anno commemoratio sollemnis de nostris illis heroibus Ignatio Loyoleo, Francisco Xaverio, Philippo Nerio, Theresia a Iesu et Isidoro Agricola, qui tertio ante saeculo in album Sanctorum adscripti essent, ea non parum visa est ad christianae vitae studium in populo excitandum valuisse. Atque apostolatui, quem vocant, cum sacerdotum tum laicorum, si quidem christianam lenitatem praeferat, numquid non ingens accedat vis ad societatem hominum emendandam? An inspired writer, preacher, spiritual guide for several saints, capable of converting many souls who had embraced Calvinism, Saint Francis de Sales (1567-1622) combined gentleness with an enthusiasm for truth, as Pius XI recalled in the encyclical Rerum Omnium Perturbationem of 1923, for the benefit of "those Catholics who as journalists and writers expound, spread, and defend the doctrines of the â¦ On the Persecution of the Armenians. But this very mildness and simplicity which characterize their rule ought to inspire the observance of it with such great love of God that the Sisters who glory in their title, Daughters of St. Francis de Sales, may become known for their perfect abnegation of self and for their humble obedience at all times. In truth, the many explanations of doctrine and the arguments which he has marshaled in orderly array, are worthy of all praise. Multa quidem Salesii scripta praeterimus, unde etiam caelestis eius doctrina, veluti aquae vivae flumen, irrigando Ecclesiae agro... utiliter populo Dei fluxit ad salutem (10); at facere non possumus quin Controversiarum librum memoremus, in quo, sine ulla dubitatione, plena catholicae fidei demonstratio (11) habetur. 4. Iam videamus, Venerabiles Fratres, quemadmodum Salesius, cum se ipse praeberet amabile exemplum sanctitatis, idem tutam expeditamque omnibus christianae perfectionis viam scribendo commonstraverit, atque ut, in hac quoque re, Iesum Dominum, qui coepit facere et docere (9), imitatus esse videatur. 2. Likewise can we not hope that, through the practice of this virtue which we rightly call the external sign of the inner possession of divine love, there will result perfect peace and concord both in family life and among nations? His sermons, since they were largely made up of the teachings of the Bible and of the Fathers, became not only a source of sound doctrine but were agreeable and persuasive to his hearers as well by reason of the sweetness of the love which filled his heart. (de Natura et Gratia, Chap. Rerum omnium perturbationem, quae nunc adest, cum proxime in Encyclicis Litteris consideraremus medendi gratia, vidimus in ipsis hominum animis inhaerere malum, eiusque sanationem tum demum sperari posse si Iesu Christi medica per Ecclesiam sanctam manus invocetur.

But when He does order us to do something He, by His very commands, admonishes us to do that which we are able to do and to ask from Him for assistance in that which we are not of ourselves able to do." In the first place, he proves that no authority can be said to exist in the Church of Christ unless it had been bestowed on her by an authoritative mandate, which mandate the ministers of heretical beliefs in no way can be said to possess. Studiorum ducem "On St. Thomas Aquinas" Thomas Aquinas: 29 June 1923: 4.

The solemn commemoration last year of the third centenary of the canonization of five great saints - Ignatius Loyola, Francis Xavier, Philip Neri, Teresa of Jesus, and Isidore the Farmer - helped greatly, Venerable Brothers, toward reawakening among the faithful a love for the Christian life. Cuius si aliquando verba videntur vehementiora, ex iis tamen eminet, ut ipsimet fatebantur adversarii, omnis disputationis eius moderatrix, vis caritatis; nam vel quando errantibus filiis eorum a catholica fide defectionem exprobrat, non alio eum spectare apparet, nisi ut viam sibi muniat ad eorum reditum enixe implorandum.

It was organized to receive young women, widows, and married women who, because of their weakness, illness, or advanced age, are physically unequal to the tasks which their religious fervor would gladly impose on them. We cannot accept the belief that this command of Christ concerns only a select and privileged group of souls and that all others may consider themselves pleasing to Him if they have attained a lower degree of holiness. He not only replied to the envoy sent him in a manner befitting his own high rank, but did not cease demanding reparation for the injury done until after he had received full satisfaction from the Senate. Basil 2011 December. Whoever attentively reviews the life of St. Francis will discover that, from his earliest years, he was a model of sanctity. He wrote at all times in a dignified but facile style, varied now and then by a marvelous acuteness in thought and grace of expression, and by reason of these qualities his writings have proven themselves quite agreeable reading. After having pointed out how we must flee sin, fight against our evil inclinations, and avoid all useless and harmful actions, he then goes on expounding the nature of those practices of piety which cause the soul to grow, as well as how it is possible for man to remain ever united to God.
