Theme I: Saint Louis and Spiritual life[1]


“Turn your life Godwards”

“Dear son, my very first teaching is to love God with all your heart and all your strength for without that no-one is worth anything.” (From a spiritual testament to his son by St. Louis)

“Men are strange; they make a crime out of my assiduity in prayer but would say nothing if I spent hours playing cards or dice, tracking wild beasts or hunting birds.” (Attributed to St Louis by Joinville)
