Simplicity itself

“Simplicity is the presiding unity of the Sacred Infancy.  If to be holy we are to become as little children, to be saints we must be as the little Child of Bethlehem.  And simplicity is equally the great law of the Blessed Sacrament.  It is not something consecrated by the virtue of God, it is God Himself.  It is not the influence, the effect, the grace of Jesus:  it is Jesus Himself, the personal fount of grace.”
