Wisdom of Companions

Try to keep your soul always in peace and quiet, always ready for whatever our lord may wish to work in you. it is certainly a higher virtue of the soul, and a greater grace, to be able to enjoy the Lord in different times and different places than in only one.

St. Ignatius Loyola

Take care not to frighten away by stern rigor poor sinners who are trying to lay bare the shocking state of their souls. Speak to them rather of the great mercy of God; sometimes people are more helped by your telling of your own lamentable past.

St. Francis Xavier

Take care, take care, never to close your heart to anyone.

St. Peter Faber
