St. Francis De Sales in Rome

 

Once when St. Francis de Sales was in Rome, he rented a room for himself in an inn on the banks of the Tiber River. The first evening he was there, on returning to the inn to sleep, he found to his surprise, his servant in a vehement argument with the innkeeper about his room. The fact was that the landlord wanted to give the rooms, which the bishop had rented to a party of strangers who had just arrived. St. Francis put an end to the argument immediately. “I will have no quarrelling,” he said to his servant. “Come with me, we will find lodging elsewhere.” After a long and tiring search they found suitable rooms in another inn. They had not been there long when it began to rain very heavily. In consequences, the Tiber became so swollen that it overflowed its banks and washed away several houses, among then the hotel from which the saint had been so uncourteously expelled. Several of the lodgers died in the flood, so it can be said that St. Francis owed his life to his peaceableness.
