Love’s Design calls you to your whole self to the best you are able.

The best things always do.

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 90, as written by Fr. Médaille:

Accomplish with great diligence and perfection everyday actions and unexpected ones, and never become careless in this respect.
