LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

KINDNESS

'Ruysbroek's saying, "Be kind, be kind, and you will be saints" can mean either "If you are always kind you will end by being holy" or 'If you are always kind, this shows that you are already holy" : kindness is a means to holiness, it is also the constant inevitable overflow of holiness - or wholeness - and in fact it is only in the latter sense that the full glory of caritas will be found.'
~ fr Gerald Vann OP, The Eagle's Word, p.91
