Topic: doing good
“As soon as you commit a fault, be sorry, rise again and go on with confidence and love.”
“Do what you do with uprightness, with the desire of pleasing God, without so much uneasiness about the future.”
“We would love to tell you again that every day we include you all in our labors and prayers.”
“Our need for virtue is greater than for learning.”
“You may not live to see it, but you will have sown the seed, and your Sisters will come to reap what will have been sown.”
“Repent of your sins and failings; take resolutions to do better and, after that, be quiet. The more we stir up a dunghill, the more it exhales bad odors.”
“...ours is the preparation for the generation that will succeed us, and eminent good will be done this way by us.”
“Let us love one another ... Let us love [God] in our sisters, serve [God] in our neighbor, that is the easiest way to do good.”
