Quote of the Day – 23 December – The Memorial of St John of Kanty (1390-1473)

“Fight all error
but do it with good humour,
patience, kindness and love.
Harshness will damage your own soul
and spoil the best cause.”

St John of Kanty (1390-1473)fight all error - st john of kanty - 23 dec 2017

“Going hand-in-hand with that true brand of humility
one saw in him a great childlike humility.
There was nothing deceitful or ambiguous
in his actions and words.
Whatever was in his heart he unhesitantly
and honestly revealed.
If he thought that his words,
even when speaking the truth,
could accidentally offend someone,
he humbly asked for forgiveness
before approaching the altar.”

Pope Clement X (In the Bull of Canonisation of St John of Kanty on 16 July 1767)going hand in hand - st john of kanty - 23 dec 2017
