Among Women Espresso Shot #34: Flowers at the Foot of the Cross

Welcome to Episode 34 of Among Women “Espresso Shot”
– a short strong coffee break of faith sharing and teaching from Pat Gohn.

Today’s topic: Flowers at the Foot of the Cross

Growing in virtue takes day-by-day effort! St. Francis de Sales’ famous work Introduction to the Devout Life has been part of my spiritual reading for a long time! Today I want to share with you his advice on how our practice of virtue — for the love of Jesus — can become as “flowers at the foot of the Cross.” This simple little word picture about these flowers has helped me through Lent and is propelling me through Easter. I hope you’ll agree that Francis de Sales is a master teacher and spiritual guide.
