QUOTATION: Being a Religious

St. Peter Julian Eymard
Sometimes we pride ourselves on the merit of havnng become a religious, and think we have done a heroic action. Alas! we are in arrears with mercy. The advantage is all on our side. We receive a hundred times more than we have given. It is all for our gross interest. It is we who are the gainers, we who are served by it, and not we who serve.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
