JC Administrator's quotes

Have that tender care that expresses itself in the little things

CdF face 1
Have that tender care that expresses itself in the little things that are like a balm for the heart... With our neighbours go into the smallest details, whether it is a question of health, of consolation, of prayerfulness, or of need. Console and ease the pain of others through the tiniest of attentions. Be as tender and attentive towards those whom God puts on our path, as a brother towards brother or as a mother for her child. As much as possible be an element of consolation for those around us, as soothing balm, as our Lord was towards all those who drew near to him.

I see so much good to be done

CdF face 1

God who is infinite, all powerful, has become human

CdF old face
God who is infinite, all powerful, has become human, the least of human beings. My way is always to seek the lowest place, to be as little as my Master, to walk with him step by step as a faithful disciple. My way is to live with my God who lived this way all his life and who has given me such an example from his very birth.

Be more like Jesus

The amount of good we do

CdF old face
The amount of good we do does not depend on what we say or on what we do, but on what we are. It depends on the extent that Jesus lives in us and that it is Jesus who acts in and through us.
