maxim 52 – read the original

Sharon Urban

Interpret all things from the best possible point of view.

The universe will return the favor!

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 52, as written by Fr. Médaille:

Interpret all things from the best possible point of view.
