Principles and Practices - May 10

The Best Choice

Jesus Christ says last of all:
Blessed are the humble and those who suffer persecution for justice, who are calumniated for My sake, who live and die in obscurity, victims of the holy love of God.
The glory of the Saints will be their recompense and their lot. The world, however, next to gold and silver, next to sensual pleasures, esteems only glory and honours, tyranny and inde­pendence.

It considers unhappy those who lead a hidden life without any renown, spent in the un­known service of charity and the care of the poor, the sick and the unfortunates of this world.
