Holiness or eloquence?

The teachings of the Father de Conden were so beautiful that the Cardinal de
Berulle wrote on his knees what he heard him say, and that St Vincent de Paul,
when leaving him, would exclaim: "No man has ever spoken like him!" After an hour's interview with him, St Jane Francis de Chantal cried "If our Blessed
Father, Francis de Sales, can teach men, Father de Conden can teach angels!"

(Abbe Bougard)
