CHRISTIAN LIFE




CHRISTIAN ACTS

Our actions have a tongue of their own; they have an eloquence of their own, even when the tongue is silent. For deeds prove the lover more than words, states St. Cyril.

The Lord measures our perfection neither by the multitude nor the magnitude of our deeds, but by the manner in which we perform them, adds St. John of the Cross.

It is not the actual physical exertion that counts towards a man's progress, nor the nature of the task, but the spirit of faith with which it is undertaken, says St. Francis Xavier.

St. Augustine states that God bestows more consideration on the purity of intention with which our actions are performed than on the actions themselves.

An action of small value performed with much love of God is far more excellent than one of a higher virtue done with less love of God, St. Francis de Sales reminds us.
