St. Claude, canonized by Pope John Paul II, ranks among the masters of the spiritual life as a director of souls. He gave direction to countless souls, including to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, the great visionary of the Sacred Heart revelations. Jesus told St. Margaret Mary, "Father Claude is my perfect friend and servant. His gift is to lead souls to God."
St. Claude preached missions and retreats on the Sacred Heart. He was also a clever psychologist who easily read the hearts of other. His sure judgment, aided by grace, enabled him to understand the difficulties of each soul and give the advice most needed for each person. Readers of this spiritual gem will find his insights full of wisdom and inspiration.
His writings cover such important areas of the spiritual life as: Confession, Mass and Holy Communion, Confidence in God, Perfection & Holiness, Peace of Soul, Charity, Education of Children, Spiritual Joy, Prayer, Zeal, and much more.
