maxim 16 – read the original

Sharon Urban

Practice love and gratitude.  Everywhere.

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 16, as written by Fr. Médaille:

In everything and everywhere, have only God, his will and his glory before your eyes, and make no account of anything else.
