Francis of sales was born in 1567 in Château de Sales in France . While there he had 13 years to think of becoming a vocation to the priesthood before he had mentioned it to his family. But his father wanted him to be a soldier and sent him off to Paris to study, while this happened Francis said nothing. Francis was a very patient man and had gone to Padua to get a doctorate in law and went to study theology and practiced mental prayers while going to parties and getting into sword fights. And throughout all this he had not spoken a word, Why did he wait so long? He had waited for gods will to be cleared. And never wanted to push wishes on god.
