All the helps afforded by the religious life share in the nobility of its end. All its graces are eminent. Only extraordinary graces are therein received. Everything in it elevates us to uncommon holiness, to eminent sanctity. In it we must be saints under penalty of being altogether unfaithful There is no middle course. Every religious is called to be a great saint, and the graces he receives are m proportion to this sublime vocation.
--St. Peter Julian Eymard
