Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in His presence…
- I John 3:18-19
As our Savior says: "A good tree is not able to produce bad fruit." He says: A good tree, that is, a good heart as well as a soul on fire with charity, can do nothing but good and holy works. For this reason
said: "Love, and do what you
will," namely, possess love and charity and then do what you will. It is as if
he had said: Charity is not able to sin.

Shortly before her death in 1540, one of Angela’s friends asked her for a spiritual testament.
She advised: “Do now - do now- what you'll wish you had done when your moment comes to die.”
St Angela Merici, pray for us!
