maxim 15 – read the original

Sharon Urban

Wait for it…Listen for what you are being called to…

Then just do it!

The Maxims of the Little Institute of the Sisters of St. Joseph were written by our founder, Father Jean-Pierre Médaille, SJ, in the late 1600s as fundamental principles which a person seeking a life with God could follow.

Sister Susan Wilcox, CSJ of Brentwood, NY and a group of her high school students provided the contemporary translations.

Original Maxim 15, as written by Fr. Médaille:

Likewise, be very faithful to the grace of the Holy Spirit, listening to him attentively, obeying him promptly and entirely, attributing to him, as is indeed just, the honor resulting from the success of your good actions.
