Principles and Practices - July 25

What Is the Secret?

The spirit of a saint is like a delicate and exquisite perfume, that can scarcely be defined, though enjoyed by all.

It is a cordial that refreshes, an elixir that quickens, different from all others, though one cannot say how.

-Cardinal Wiseman.
