maxim 89 – read the original

Sharon Urban

Be your best as much as possible!

The returns are highest.

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 89, as written by Fr. Médaille:

Profit from the opportunities that arise to practice the general virtues in their highest degree.
