maxim 57 – read the original

Sharon Urban

When things are popping in your life…

don’t think it’s you that made it happen.

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 57, as written by Fr. Médaille:

At the end of your good works, give all the glory to our dear Savior, who by his death has truly become the inspiration of your life and of your good works.
