Humility

“The Lord wants the whole, undivided heart.  And only those who are resolved to give it to Him and to stay with Him for life are allowed to dare to wear the dress, the holy bridal dress of faithfulness.  Only those, however, have a right to the joy of living near Him.  Give everything, dear Sisters, without any reservation, just as the Lord on that first Christmas gave everything for you.  Because it is sure that He already then gave His heavenly Father His life for mankind.  Now offer Him yours.  Lay it as a sacrifice in the crib!  You will see how royally, no how divinely, He will repay you.” 


Our foundress, Mother M. Anselma, before a secret Reception ceremony, Midnight Mass, 1877
