Salesian Quote of the Day

“All are called to perfection, since Our Lord was speaking to all when He said: “Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matt, 5:48), But, in truth, we may well say what is said in the holy Gospel: “Many are called, but the elect are few.” (Matt, 20-16; 22:14) There are many who aspire to perfection, but few attain it because they do not walk as the should – ardently, yet tranquilly; carefully, but confidently; that is to say, relying more on Divine Goodness and His Providence than upon themselves and their own works.” ~ The Sermons of St. Francis de Sales for Lent, page 120.
