“A Christian must be courteous to all. His words and deeds should breathe with the Grace of the Holy Spirit, which abides in his Soul, so that in this way he might Glorify the Name of God.”

“Christians, have we understood the great responsibility that we have taken on before God through Baptism? Have we come to know that we must conduct ourselves as children of God, that we must align our will with the Will of God, that we must remain free from sin, that we must love God with all our hearts and always patiently await union with Him? Have we thought about the fact that our heart should be so filled with love that it should overflow to our neighbour? Do we have the feeling that we must become Holy and perfect, children of God and heirs of the Kingdom of Heaven? We must struggle for this, so that we may not be shown unworthy and rejected. Let none of us lose our boldness, nor neglect our duties, nor be afraid of the difficulties of spiritual struggle. For we have God as a helper, Who strengthens us in the difficult path of virtue.”

“Compassion is the sensitivity of good Souls who love their neighbours. Compassionate people suffer with those in pain and regard any trouble afflicting their neighbour as their own. They hasten to help and are relieved when those who are suffering gain respite. They want to expunge unhappiness from the world and to spread joy and gladness to every corner of it.”
