The Morning Call, Thursday, January 19, 2006
An opinion piece written by Rev. Thomas Dailey, OSFS, director of the Salesian Center of Faith & Culture and a professor of theology at DeSales, focuses on the phenomenon of saints, such as Saint Francis de Sales, who advised people to "Be who you are, and be that well." Father Dailey writes that saints are people who gave their lives to witness heroic virtue and the public has always adored them. Saint Francis de Sales, the patron saint of DeSales University, was a doctor, a pastor, a provost, a humanist and a writer during his time. His feast day is celebrated on January 24. Father Dailey concludes that we celebrate the feast days of the saints to recognize their legacy and to see and seek what we are called to be.
