Over the last number of years “Salesian Spirituality,” first articulated by Francis de Sales and Jane Frances de Chantal, has attracted renewed interest in English-speaking countries.
Theirs has been called a “spirituality of the heart,” and their prayer style has been dubbed intuitive, simple, spacious but unified and holistic.
Much of this growing appeal for things Salesian, at least in the United States, has grown out of the efforts of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales.
In recent years they have set up the “International Commission on Salesian Studies,” and have offered courses in Salesian spirituality at Allentown College of St. Francis de Sales, in Pennsylvania.
