Have you ever wondered who you truly are and how you could live your life well? Saint Francis de Sales, (pictured above) one of the Doctors of the Church, is a saint who deeply reflected on these questions and offers us rich insights on our life and vocation as Christians and even more as human beings. Fr. Binu Edathumparambil, MSFS, author and psychotherapist, shares his thoughts and reflections on one of the famous sayings of this saint, “Be who you are and be that well” through a weekend retreat on December 13-15, 2019.
