Quote of the day, 24 December: Mother Agnès of Jesus, O.C.D.

We must do our best simply and humbly. How beautiful it is, it is every thing — littleness, the spirit of childhood, humility. Let us ask just for these virtues at Jesus’ crib. He will give them to us, and we shall be as happy as is possible in the land of exile and then go straight to heaven.
