Desolation - #OnlineSaints

Jane was a beautiful and refined woman. After seven years of a very happy marriage, her husband died in an accident. Jane was inconsolable and fell into a deep depression. 

With the help of her spiritual director Saint Francis de Sales, she gradually learned to recognise how God loved her very much. This was the beginning of a new way to face her depression, which helped her to accept the inevitable and make most of her life. With the help of God’s grace you can do the same!
