Daniel P. Wisniewski, O.S. F. S.

Wisniewski, D. P. (2012) Chains of love: The eternity of friendship in the spriritualiy of St. Francis de Sales. In Chorpenning, J.F. (2012)  Encountering anew the familiar: Francis De Sales' introduction to the Devout Life at 400 years. Rome: International Commission for Salesian Studies.

On 27-28, July 2009, in Annecy, the De Sales Oblates officially commemorated the fourth century of the publication of the Introduction to the Devout Life - St. Francis de Sales' most popular and best-selling book, which has not gone out of print in 400 years. The celebration's centerpiece was the symposium, "Encountering Anew the Familiar: The Introduction to the Devout LIfe at 400 years. The symposium was based on the concept that sometimes the Introcution's contents seem so familiar, that it is perceived that there is nothing more or new to be discovered or known about this spiritual classic; however, by its very nature, a spiritual classic is inexhaustible. Guided by this principle, the sypmposium revisited some of the Introduction's  most familiar elements and themes so as to uncover an overlooked or neglected aspect, and perhaps even to yield some fresh insights.
