GOOD WORKS

St. Paul says: The letter kills but the spirit gives life. A man has been killed by the letter when he wants to know quotations only so that people will think he is very learned and he can make money to give to his relatives and friends.

A religious has been killed by the letter when he has no desire to follow the spirit of Sacred Scriptures, but wants to know what  it says, only so that he can explain it to others. On the other hand, those who have received life are those who, by their works and example, refer to God alone all good and knowledge and never allow themselves to self-complacency.

St. Francis of Assisi
