'If Peter had not failed to catch anything during the night's fishing (cf. Luke 5:5), he would not have caught anything during the day. And if Paul had not suffered physical blindness (cf. Acts 9:Cool, he would not have been given spiritual sight. And if Stephen had not been slandered as a blasphemer, he would not have seen the heavens opened and have looked on God (cf. Acts 6:15; 7:56).'

'The Church teaches us that mercy belongs to God. Let us implore Him to bestow on us the spirit of mercy and compassion, so that we are filled with it and may never lose it. Only consider how much we ourselves are in need of mercy.'

'Should God accomplish anything great through our mediation, it should still make us count ourselves as nothing, and not cause us to take the glory to ourselves, for it does not belong to the instrument, which is often of little worth, but is due entirely to the hand which directs it.'

{A} Yarrow, or milfoil
{B} "A herbaceous, perennial plant that produces one to several stems that can grow up to 3 1/4 ft in height, and has a spreading rhizomatous growth. The leaves are two to eight inches long, almost feathery, and arranged spirally on the stems." It has clusters of miniature flowers. Of ancient use in herbal medicine due to its great efficacy in many areas. Useful for "wounds, fevers, circulation, digestion" and further. Like many herbs not for pregnant women.
{C} St. Gall, Abbot's feast will often have these flowers blooming upon it. The many tiny flowers of yarrow speak of its many good uses, and make one think of the many virtues God gave St. Gall.

Of St. Gall it is said, "He only left his cell to preach, and instruct chiefly the wildest and most abandoned among the inhabitants in the mountainous parts of the country: and returning continually to his hermitage, he there often spent whole nights and days in holy prayer and contemplation, in which he usually poured forth his soul before God with floods of tears."
