Quote of the Day

“Be careful to give no credit to yourself for anything; if you do so, you are stealing from God, to whom alone every good thing is due. Strive to be lowly, to love your own insignificance, and to be ready to accept contempt and disgrace in defiance of human nature, which always longs for success and celebrity. This is the means beyond all other to become the servant of God, and to draw down the special blessing of heaven upon all your labor.”
-St. Vincent de Paul
Some Counsels of St. Vincent de Paul
Translated by E.K. Sanders
[St. Louis, Mo.: B. Herder, 1914]
