Indian Corn

Beg our Lord to grant you perfect love for your neighbor, and leave the rest to Him. He will give you far more than you know how to desire if you constrain yourself and strive with all your power to gain it, forcing your will as far as possible to comply in all things with your sisters’ wishes, although you may sometimes forfeit your own rights in doing so. Forget your self-interests for theirs, however much nature may rebel; when opportunity occurs, take some burden upon yourself to ease your neighbor of it. Do not fancy that it will cost you nothing and that you will find it all done for you: think what the love he bore for us cost our Spouse, who, to free us from death, suffered the most painful death of all – the death of the cross.

If you were really humble it would vex you to be praised.…
