Jesus of Nazareth, our only Model
"To understand Brother Charles of Jesus totally, you need to forget him and through him see only Jesus."
- advised Little Sister Magdeleine, who founded the Little Sisters of Jesus.
In an age when much catholic piety was based on imitation of the saints, Brother Charles declared:
"You have only one model: Jesus. Do not look for another"
and dared to base his life on that insight.
Perhaps inspired by Muslims' veneration of the Holy Qur'an, he read and re-read the Christian Gospels,
"in order to think, speak and act like Jesus"
