Saint Francis de Sales Quotation — St. Joseph Church, Clarksburg

As one enters the church through the front vestibule, a comforting quotation from Saint Francis de Sales (1567 – 1622) is written over the entrance to the nave.

The quotation penned by this great patron saint of writers is especially reassuring during this challenging year of 2020. Saint Francis de Sales is a Doctor of the Universal Church and his feast day is celebrated on January 24th.

“The same everlasting Father who cares for you today, will take care of you tomorrow and every day.  Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.  Be at peace then and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations”.
