The Holy Family in Prayer

A violent temperament becomes a champion of gentleness.

It would seem that St. Francis de Sales was naturally of a gentle character; it was through virtue that he acquired that admirable gentleness with which he delighted all hearts; anger, as he said, was the passion that it cost him most to overcome.

St. Francis de Sales teaches: “Our main task must be to overcome ourselves and to improve ourselves day by day in this renunciation. It is especially necessary to apply ourselves to be victorious in the small temptations, such as vivacity, suspicion, jealousy, cowardice, and vanity: by doing so, we will obtain the strength necessary to resist the greatest temptations.”
