St. Angela Merici Quotes:
* Disorder in society is the result of disorder in
* We must give alms. Charity wins souls and draws them
* As our Savior says: "A good tree is not able
to produce bad fruit." He says: A good tree, that
is, a good heart as well as a soul on fire with charity,
can do nothing but good and holy works. For this reason
Augustine said: "Love, and do what you will,"
namely, possess love and charity and then do what you
will. It is as if he had said: Charity is not able to
of children, even if they have a thousand, carry each
and every one fixed in their hearts, and because of
the strength of their love they do not forget any of
them. In fact, it seems that the more children they
have the more their love and care for each one is increased.
* Be sincerely kind to everyone according to the words
of our Lord: "Learn of me, for I am meek and humble
of heart." Thus you are imitating God, of whom
it is said: "He has disposed all things pleasantly."
And again Jesus
said: "My yoke is easy and my burden light."
