The Spiritual Combat apparently had quite an influence on St Francis de Sales, so the similarities do not surprise me. The book itself is at once very practical but also centred entirely on advancement in the spiritual life. Scupoli gives great practical advice on day-to-day conduct to build up virtue and root out vices, as well as on prayer.
Everything is presented in short little chapters on specific topics; not a few of them focus on how to counter the attacks of the devil. Francis de Sales recommended this as a regular reading companion for the spiritual life. This is not something I recommend attempting to read quickly, but rather reading slowly, prayerfully, intentionally. The chapters are all broken up into small bite-size chunks that offer a powerful punch with plenty of content to reflect upon.
The writings are one gut punch There is good reason that St. The writings are one gut punch after the other. Scupoli does a fantastic job reminding the reader of their sinful wretchedness, but also of the infinite love of the triune God. I highly recommend any Catholic or non-Catholic Christian to pick this up and read through it, asking for the intercession of the saints for guidance throughout this book. It is a true gift. Allego alcune ITALIAN: Destinato a una "sorella in Cristo" senza nome, che probabilmente era una suora, questo libro offre una serie di suggerimenti per la vita cristiana, alcuni dei quali sono ovviamente diretti a persone dedicate esclusivamente alla vita religiosa.
Di te ENGLISH: Addressed to an unnamed "sister in Christ", probably a nun, this book offers a series of tips for the Christian life, some of which are obviously addressed to people in a exclusively religious life. For example, the word "marriage" does not appear in the book, for the intended reader had probably made a vow of celibacy. Many tips, however, may be of general use.
Here are a few interesting quotes: Indulge not in lengthy conversations with those who are bored thereby, lest you weary them, nor with those who like to listen to you, lest you go beyond the bounds of modesty. Do not speak loudly, or in a dictatorial manner, which is odious to others and a mark of presumption and vanity. Never speak of yourself If others seem to you to talk too much about themselves, try to view their conduct in a favorable light; but do not copy it, even though their words may tend to self-humiliation and self-condemnation.
Muchos de sus consejos, sin embargo, pueden ser de utilidad general.
