‘There is Only One True Devotion’ Presented by Eric Gallagher
St. Frances De Sales says that “devotion is possible for everyone.” but that there is “only one true devotion”.  If we are unable to recognize which kind of devotion is true, we can easily be deceived or led astray.  So what is true devotion and how do we obtain it?

‘A Heart Strengthened Against Temptation’ Presented by Eric Gallagher
There is much the Lord desires to teach us and grow in us but where does one start?  Devotion requires a practice and discipline in virtue and an understanding of temptation.  Our hearts must be prepared to receive but also to reject the things that keep us from being truly devoted to God.
