Francis de Sales is the patron saint of writers and journalists. He was bishop of Genova and wrote books on spiritual formation.
If he had been born in 1967 instead of 1567 he probably would have made a great lyricist of christian pop songs.
For a 16th century Roman Catholic bishop, he sure had a way with words.
"Nothing is so strong as gentleness.
Nothing is so gentle as real strength." -Francis de Sales
