Keep your relationships sacred!
It’s really all that matters, right?
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 4, as written by Fr. Médaille:
Live, as much as you can, in such a way that your life, in honor of the Holy Spirit, may be a continual act of the most pure and perfect charity that you are able to practice toward God.
