"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 a word, that it was eternal! My vocation, at last I have found it...My vocation is Love!"

“Do not say: it is impossible for me to influence others. If you are a Christian, it is impossible for this not to happen. Things found in nature cannot be denied; so here, for it is a question of the nature of the Christian. Do not insult God. If you say that the sun cannot shine, you have insulted him. If you say that a Christina cannot help others, you have insulted God and called him a liar. It is easier for the sun not to give warmth or shine than for the Christina not to shed his light. It is easier for light to be darkness than for this to happen. Do not say then that it is impossible. The opposite is impossible…The light of a Christian cannot escape notice. So bright a lamp cannot be hidden.”
—St. John Chrysostom
