Spiritual Direction From St. Francis De Sales

I truly enjoyed listening to The Introduction to the Devout Life. I love listening to everything written by or about saints and this was no exception. This audiobook is such a treasure for anyone. Every single passage in this book are words to live by. I've listened to several of my own audiobooks by saints such as St. Francis and St. Therese and this one was right up there with them. Loved it!

This was an audiobook I listened to in a few sittings. It was like music to my ears and I'll listen to it again. Robert J. Shaw's narration was perfect. He spoke very clearly and from his heart. He's a new reader for me and I'll listen to him again.
