Today’s Reflection September 14

In Paradise, there are many saints who never gave alms on earth. Their poverty justified them. There are many saints who never mortified their bodies by fasting. Their bodily infirmities excused them. There are many saints too, who were not virgins; their vocation was otherwise. But in Paradise, there is no saint who was not humble. Jesus Christ calls us all into his school to learn – not to work miracles, nor to astonish the world by marvelous enterprises, but to be humble of heart: Learn from me for I am meek and humble of heart.

-Fr. Cajetan Mary da Bergamo
