The Feast of St. Francis de Sales, Bishop, Patron Saint of Writers
is today. There is information on him here. It is possible, though perhaps unlikely, that this great saint met St. Philip Neri at one point. It is certain that he knew Blessed Juvenal Ancina, C.O. , one of St. Philip's followers.
Also, when Venerable John Henry Newman, C.O., was made a Cardinal, he chose as the motto for his coat-of-arms a phrase coined by St. Francis de Sales: cor ad cor loquitur. "Heart speaks to heart."
