"Courageously begin your work, always trying to discern your true task and the most amount of good that you can do, telling yourself that, whatever your vocation may be, there are always people suffering in mind or body to be cared for, tempers to be calmed, and hearts to be healed. Look for others on this spiritual path and do your best to influence them by your example. If you are in the active phase of your life, let your motto always be Orare et laborare (prayer and work)."Selected Writings
