Perfection?

If you ask me what you are to do in order to be perfect, I say, first:

Do not lie in bed beyond the due time of rising;

give your first thoughts to God;

make a good visit to the Blessed Sacrament;

say the Angelus devoutly;

eat and drink to God’s glory;

say the Rosary well;

be recollected; keep out bad thoughts;

make your evening meditation well;

examine yourself daily;

go to bed in good time, and you are already perfect.

— St. John Henry Newman

Pray

“To the extent that you pray with all your soul for the person who slanders you, God will make the truth known to those who have been scandalized by the slander.”

— St. Maximos the Confessor
