Jane Frances de Chantal was born in Dijon, France, on January 28, 1572, the daughter of the royalist president of the Parliament of Burgundy. Her mother died when Jane was 18 months old. Her father was a major influence on her education. She became a woman of beauty and refinement, lively and cheerful in temperament. She married the Baron de Chantal when she was 21 and then lived in the feudal castle of Bourbilly. Baron de Chantal was accidentally killed by an arquebus while firing in 1601. Widowed at 28 with four children, the heartbroken baroness took a vow of chastity. Her mother, stepmother, sister, first two children and now her husband were all dead. Chantal earned a reputation as an excellent manager of her husband’s estates as well as her difficult father-in-law, while providing alms and nursing care to neighbors in need.
Francis De Sales: Model Of Apologists
During Lent in 1604, the pious baroness met Saint Francis de Sales, the Bishop of Geneva, who was preaching at Sainte-Chapelle in Dijon. They became close friends and de Sales became her spiritual director. She wanted to become a nun, but he convinced her to postpone that decision. Later, with his support and that of her father and brother (the Archbishop of Bourges) and after providing for her children, Chantal left for Annecy to found the Congregation of the Visitation. The Congregation of the Visitation was canonically instituted at Annecy on Trinity Sunday, June 6, 1610. The Order admitted women who had been rejected by other Orders because of ill health or age. During its first eight years, the new order was also unusual in its public reach, unlike most religious women who remained closed and adopted strict ascetic practices. The usual opposition to women in active ministry arose, and Francis de Sales was forced to convert it into a closed community, following the rule of St. Augustine. When people criticized her for accepting women in poor health and old age, Chantal famously said:
Her reputation for sanctity and good governance led to many visits from (and donations from) aristocratic women. The order had 13 houses by the time de Sales died and 86 before Chantal herself died in the Visitation Convent at Moulins at the age of 69. Saint Vincent de Paul served as her spiritual director after de Sales’ death. Her favorite prayers included the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Heart of Mary. Chantal was buried in the Annecy de Sales convent. The order had 164 houses by 1767, when it was canonized. Chantal outlived her son (who died fighting Huguenots and English on Ile-de-Rête during the century’s religious wars) and two of her three daughters, but left an extensive correspondence. Her granddaughter also became a famous writer, Marie de Raboutin-Chantal, Marquise de Sevigne.
Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life – a love affair “Religion must be like the air we breathe…” – The prayer of Saint John Bosco is what the world needs, combined with the example of our lives that bear witness to the Light of Christ. This site, which now uses the traditional calendar, will focus mainly on the daily prayers, the novenas and memorials and feast days of our friends in Heaven, the saints who have gone before us, and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic monthly services. “Because the saints are sent to us by God like so many sermons. We do not use them, they are the ones who move us and lead us where we did not expect to go.” Cardinal Charles Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all its teachings.

What will the coming months bring? Since Covid it seems like everything has changed, that I am like a boat torn from its anchors, a victim of a merciless sea.
More and more I find myself turning to the saints. Their lives have become my daily comfort, their words my reading, as the world’s news grows ever more alarming. When I feel completely lost, the saints center me and rebuke me. They bear witness to facts that provoke my overwhelming fears. They show me that peace and freedom can be achieved even in the most excruciating circumstances – that darkness does
