Blasius, François Louis
(1506-1566) Benedictine abbot and spiritual writer, born Donstienne, near Liege, Belgium; died Liessies. He joined the order at the age of 14, studied at the University of Louvain, and became Abbot of Liessies, holding this office until his death. As abbot he inaugurated a reform confirmed by Pope Paul III. His many writings on spiritual subjects enjoy a well-deserved reputation. Three have been translated into English: "Mirror for Monks," "A Book of Spiritual Instruction," and "Comfort for the Faint-hearted."
