How we live it

  • 'Your mission, your teaching, must be like that of Christ: you must elevate everything you touch, console those you visit, teach those around you, enlighten those you educate.' (1920)

  • 'Make every effort to preserve unity of spirit at all costs, and to preserve it through love, which is the bond of peace, not by violent means, nor for your own convenience, nor for any other human consideration.' (1920)

  • ‘The men of God and the women of God are unmistakable. They do not stand out because they are brilliant, or dazzling, or for their human strength, but because of their wholesome fruit.’ (1925)

  • 'Salt seasons what is unsavory. This is your mission, to season what is unsavory, wherever you go, where you live, among those you meet; to make the devout life pleasing, virtue attractive, penance cheerful, to make suffering consoling.' (1920)

  • ‘The world is unsavory and so are the worldly, but when those spirits encounter the salt of virtue, of love of God, of true charity and of self-denial and sacrifice, they come away seasoned.’ (1920)

  • “Take on trouble in order to channel joy to others; these are the effects of divine love: demanding with oneself, gentle with others.” (1916)

  • 'Learn to be humble like Jesus, like Jesus prudent, strong, patient, kind-hearted, compassionate, charitable. Pray like him and with him; prepare yourselves for your apostolic mission as the Master prepared himself' (1917)

  • ‘Make every effort to preserve unity of spirit at all costs, and to preserve it through love, which is the bond of peace, not by violent means, nor for your own convenience.’ (1920)

  • ‘Pray for your enemies and do everything in your power that they may know and love God. Charity in your heart, in your thoughts, in your words, in your actions.’ (1920)
