And he has also invited some of his fellow Oblates of St. Francis de Sales to share their insights and experiences as well. Enjoy this book. It will provide the perfect meditation to go with your morning coffee.

“Thanks to Michael O’Neill McGrath–both through his art and his friendship—I have been introduced to the spirituality of St. Francis de Sales. And thanks to Mickey, I have discovered a spirituality that is incredibly gentle, tender, warm, inviting and joyful. It’s been a great blessing in my life. Now, in his new book, Mickey invites you into that world of tenderness. Let Mickey’s art and Francis’s words show you, in a brand new way, how much God loves you.”
-JAMES MARTIN, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage and My Life with the Saints
“Bro. Mickey’s illuminations, along with his own words and the contributions of his confreres, breathe colorful new life into the timeless words and teachings of St. Francis de Sales. The Salesian message is as relevant as ever.”
-RICHARD ROHR, OFM
