"Oh! How beautiful is religion! I was thinking a little while ago that between Our Lord and these good religious, His mystic brides, there took place a contest in generosity. But, do what they may, Our Lord invariably proves the winner. The Sisters said, "I renew my vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience." Yet, it was they who received most, for I, in my turn said, "May the Body of Our Lord Jesus Christ keep thy soul unto life everlasting."
~St. John Marie Vianney, on the occasion of the Renewal of Vows of twenty-two Sisters of St. Joseph
A blessed Feast of St. John Marie Vianney and St. Dominic to one and all!
