"Be faithful to your morning and evening prayer, and to that honest examination of conscience that strengthens and guides the moral life. However absorbing your occupations may be, every day reserve a few minutes for recollection and solid meditation, which will strengthen you for the struggle.
"Above all, receive Holy Communion often with simplicity, confidence, and love. Approach our Savior without anxiety as the friend he is, able to understand and share everything, with whom you can talk about your joys and sorrows, your temptations, and even the doubts that he can remove, your human plans and spiritual desires."Selected Writings
