St Francis de Sales on Devotion

“Believe me…devotion is the pleasure of pleasures, and the queen of virtues. It is the perfection of charity. If charity be milk, devotion is the cream; if charity be a plant, devotion is its flower; if charity be a precious stone, devotion is its lustre; if charity be a precious balm, devotion is its odour; yes, the odour of sweetness which comforts men and makes the angels rejoice”
