The Teachings of the Saints - CHARITY

"Let each one love his brother in charity. We have each our faults. He who has to put up with his brother's fault to-day will have to be borne with himself tomorrow" St Alphonsus Liguori

~~~

"Dismiss all anger, and look a little into yourself. Remember that he of whom you are speaking is your brother, and, as he is in the way of salvation, God can make him a Saint, notwithstanding his present weaknesses. You may fall into the same faults or perhaps into a worse fault" St Thomas of Villanova

~~~

"There are so many sorts of troubles in this world, and so many people who are afflicted in different ways, that we ought to be very glad when we can help any one to carry their cross" St Chantal

~~~

"Be as gentle always as possible; and remember that you will catch more flies with a spoonful of honey than with a hundred barrels of vinegar. Such is the nature of the human mind; it rebels against severity, but gentleness renders it amenable to everything" St Francis of Sales

~~~

"We must sometimes bear with little defects in others, as we have, against our will, to bear with natural defects in ourselves. If we wish to keep peace with our neighbor, we should never remind any one of his natural defects" St Philip
