maxim 68- read the original

There are a lot of distractions out there…

Try not to get caught up in them.   Tweeting it is not the same as doing 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 68, as written by Fr. Médaille:

Consider as suspect any desire that is overeager and capable of distracting you from more necessary and obligatory occupations.
