Selected Letters of St. Francis de Sales, translated by Elisabeth Stopp


When Elizabeth Stopp began translating the letters of St. Francis de Sales over fifty years ago, she found the inner rhythm and integration of his personality hard to translate, but her friend Fr Ferdinand Valentine, O.P. wrote to her in a letter, “You have recaptured and translated [his] music as well as [his] the words.” “I myself remember first really falling in love with Francis de Sales, the warm and delightful person whom I wanted to meet, in his letters selected for this wonderful book, now in print the first time since 1960. I have treasured an old copy for decades now and am delighted to be part of making it again available to readers everywhere. Go ahead, fall in love with this charming author, saint and master spiritual director” — DeSales Oblate, Father John Graden
