maxim 38 – read the original

Sharon Urban

Don’t complain about anyone except yourself.

Yes, really.

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 38, as written by Fr. Médaille:

Never complain about anyone but yourself.
