"Charity gave me the key to my vocation. I understood that the Church had a Heart and that this Heart was burning with love. I understood that Love comprised all vocations, that Love was everything, that it embraced all times and places...in a word, that it was eternal! My vocation, at last I have found it...My vocation is Love!"

On Prayer

When we pray,
our words should be calm,
modest and disciplined.
Let us reflect
that we are standing before God.
We should please him
both by our bodily posture
and the manner of our speech.
It is characteristic of the vulgar
to shout and make a noise,
not those who are modest.
On the contrary,
they should employ a quiet tone
in their prayer.
--St. Cyprian
