"If you wish to go to extremes, let it be in sweetness, patience, humility and charity."
St Philip Neri
"The highest degree of meekness consists in seeking, serving, honoring, and treating amiably, on occasion, those who are not to our taste, and who show themselves unfriendly, ungrateful, and troublesome to us."
St Frances de Sales
Very timely quotes, seeing as it is Lent, and, as I said before, the devil is working overtime to bring unrest and dissension into as many situations as he can right now! Today, let's all try to be extremists - in sweetness, patience, humility and charity! If I can pull it off, I'm sure my family will wonder what I'm up to!
Wait, one final quote that I just saw in an email:
" do what God expects of you each moment, and leave the rest to Him. I assure you that living in this manner will bring you great peace." ~St.
