QUOTATION: Be Kind to Yourself

St. Peter Julian Eymard
A poor person comes to you. You give him an alms, because of his need, without inquiring into the cause, more or less legitimate, of his poverty. To what purpose would you inquire and discuss? He is poor, you receive him as such, and give him charity. Treat yourself in the same way. Your spiritual weakness and indigence are the condition of humility for you. Accept your impotence with meekness. That will engender a certain peace, which will sufficiently unite you with God.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
