in a little study of humility
and, in a single act of it,
than in all the knowledge
in the world.”

to free yourselves,
even from venial sin
and to do
what is most perfect.”
“There are more tears
shed over answered prayers,
than over unanswered prayers.”
“The surest way to determine.
whether one possesses the love of God,
is to see, whether he or she loves his or her neighbour.
These two loves are never separated.
Rest assured, the more you progress
in love of neighbour,
the more your love of God will increase.”
“Remember that you have only one soul;
that you have only one death to die;
that you have only one life. . . .
If you do this,
there will be many things
about which you care nothing.”
“There is no such thing
as bad weather.
All weather is good
because, it is God’s.”
